The 12 Foods of Christmas, #2

Cannelloni “a partner’s perk”

On the second day of Christmas my sister gave to me, an order for our handcrafted  cannelloni…

Every Holiday between Christmas and New Years, my sister orders gift cannelloni for Dr. John’s partners. They love this partner “perk,”  a wonderful gift of food to share with family and friends, it’s a tradition!

Cute story of family lore: During the many years of cooking w/my Mom, she would say, “Nancy, promise never to change my classic recipes.” I have diligently respected Mom’s recipes and especially her method, however, as eating habits changed, I realized the need to update Mom’s recipe, for example, to create a vegetarian version. Even in our family, we have vegetarian preferences. Family applaud the upated versions reflecting vegetarian tastes. As a result, our hand crafted cannelloni are available in three varieties: Artichoke sauced with an Artichoke Cream, Porcini Mushroom sauced with a Porcini Cream and Mom’s Classic Roasted Chicken or Veal w/ Spinach.  Our cannelloni are special order so please call early to give us time to prepare. Order your handcrafted traditional and updated versions today.  Give the gift of food from Love & Garlic California Artisan Foods & Catering.


St. Stephen’s Day, December 26, is a traditional holiday in Catalonia. It is celebrated right after Christmas, with a feast including canelons. They are small pasta ‘pipes’stuffed with ground meat from the escudella i carn d’olla, turkey or capon of the previous day (Christmas dinner).
