Since 2016, the cannoli connoisseurs at T. Cavallaro & Sons have been inviting Melburnians into their Footscray shop to learn about Sicilian pastry.
With 50 years of history behind them, the Cavallaro family have been an integral part of Melbourne's Italian community.
Sharing the flavours of their home in Sicily is part of what they do.
Spend a day with the Cavallaro family making cannoli and almond biscotti, before you partake in the tradition of making your very own marzipan Easter lamb. The lambs are created with 120-year-old plaster moulds brought here by founder Tommaso Cavallaro from Lipari, an island off the coast of Sicily. In between cooking, you'll stop for a typical Sicilian lunch.
Roll up your sleeves and get hands-on with food history in this intimate cooking class.
