Cannolo Award

Welcome to the official page of the Cannolo Award!


What is the purpose of the Cannolo Award?
Preserve authentic contemporary (continental) Italian food.

Who is eligible for the Cannolo Award?
Everyone blogging about authentic Italian food (not just those who were born in Italy), in the English language.

How does it work?
The Cannolo Award can only be given to Authentic Italian Food Bloggers by another authentic Italian food blogger.

Why is it just for authentic Italian food?
Because it started that way, but it doesn't have to stop there! If you agree with the philosophy, then please go ahead and create your award! For instance, if you are an Authentic Japanese Food Blogger, then create the Wasabi Award and give it to other authentic Japanese food bloggers. If you are an Italian-American Food Blogger, then create the Spaghetti With Meatballs Award and give it to other authentic Italian-American food bloggers!

I am a Cannolo Award winner, how do I display it on my blog?
You can easily add it to your sidebar through a "Text Widget" (WordPress) or a "HTML/Javascript" Page Element (Blogger). Once you have it installed, paste the following as the content:
<a href="http://www.disgracesonthemenu.com/p/cannolo-award.html"><img src="http://ia601207.us.archive.org/17/items/CannoloAwardLogo/CANNOLO-AWARD.png" width="200"></a>
Please change the 'width' to match your sidebar. Click here for higher resolutions.

  12. I am honored to be added to this list of wonderful food blogs, Paolo...grazie! I truly believe in what we are doing: that we need to preserve authentic Italian recipes and pass them down as they were passed to us, before there is nothing left of true Italian cuisine in North America. Buon Appetito! CC

  16. Ciao Paolo! I'm a Canadian expat living in Tuscany who blogs about Italian food (Authentic recipes only - did you know parmigiano doesn't come shaken out from a green, plastic canister? Mind blowing!) and places to see, things to do, etc. And OK OK - I admit, I do post recipes that remind me of home (I'm only human) on occasion.

    May I be included in this award to proudly display my Cannolo?

  17. Ciao Paolo! I love this initiative. I saw a Canolo award on another site and had to find out what it was all about. What a great way to support fellow bloggers. I run an Italian food blog as well: www.anitaliancanadianlife.ca and I post all the traditional recipes from my family and my husband's family. I'm trying to write down all my family recipes so they don't get lost over time. I would love to be included on your list. Cheers!
