National Cannoli Day

For National Cannoli Day, The Philadelphia Inquirer went behind the scenes for a deep dive into cannoli making. Merchantville resident and third-generation owner of Isgro Pasteries, Gus Sarno, narrates and demonstrates the handmade art of the cannolis they've been making since 1904 in this video. Located at 1009 Christian Street, right off of the Italian Market in Philadelphia, this award-winning bakery produces an abundance of goodies using recipes to make traditional Italian pastries and cookies by hand. Their cannoli recipe has kept customers lining up for decades. Open Tuesday through Sunday. Follow them on Facebook.
