Before the storm there were a ton of Italians in St. Bernard. It seemed like every other family had a Lil Ant'ony or Tony. Then there's Rocky and Carlos, and if you've ever talked to Rocky you just feel the Sicily. Two of my best buds were Italian, one had an Uncle... and the other caused a family scandal when she married a guy whose grandparents were from Italy, (he wasn't Italian enough for her parents who were directly from Italy.) I used to love sitting in their kitchen and listening to them talk, her mama used to, "talka like dis." Great accent.

Default Italian Marching Society

Move to Nawlins and join the Italian-American Club, march in the St.Joseph's Day parade in the Quarta's and you'll meet every Wopper in town!

Contact Magistrate Judge Anthony J. Russo, he is the founder and President of the Club.

Tell him the Wagoosie Tribe Witch Dr. sent you! he'll give you the secret handshake and then you are IN!

Can you make stuffed Artichokes?

How about Cannoli Piana degli Albanesi?

Default Cannoli Shell

Chef Leo's Cannoli Shell Recipe

4 sifted cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cup red wine
1 egg yolk, beaten slightly
Resift flour with sugar and cinnamon in a small heap on bread board.
Make a well in center and pour wine into it.
Stir from center out to mix.
Knead dough until smooth and stiff, about 15 minutes.
(Kneading and rolling work best on a marble board or a regular board with a stiff cotton cover.)
If dough still seems moist and sticky, knead in more flour.
It must be quite stiff.
If too dry to roll easily, add a few more drops of wine and knead in.
Cover dough with a warm bowl and let stand two hours in a moderately cool place.
Roll out the dough as thin as paper.
Cut into five-inch rounds and wrap each around a metal cannoli tube.
(Cut smaller, about 3", if to be used on the smaller cannoli tubes.)
Wrap dough loosely around form so that about .25" of the form protrudes at each end.
Seal by brushing a little egg yolk (a feather brush works best) on the overlapping edge.
Fry two at a time in deep hot fat for one minute, or until browned on both sides.
Lift out very carefully with a slotted spoon or tongs.
Drain on absorbent paper.
When cool, gently remove from the form and fill with the desired filling.
Refrigerate after filling.
Unfilled shells will keep about 6 weeks, boxed, in a cool dry place.
Filled shells should be served soon after making.
