Getting good pastries or baked items in Houston is rough. They just don’t bake things down here like they do on the east coast. Luckily, Central Market (a Texas only high-class grocery store) did an “Italia” month and they had a whole bunch of awesome Italian pastries. They weren’t exactly like the kinds you’d get from a legit bakery in New Jersey/New York but they were pretty darn good.
On a side note if you like Cannolis you may want to checkout my new book, “Cupcakes vs. Brownies!”
It’s a candypunk novel and cannolis are one of the many desserts that appear in it.
