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 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 “.jpg/Javascript” Page Element (Blogger). Once you have it installed, paste the following as the content:

<a href="https://www.disgracesonthemenu.com/cannolo-award.html"><img src="https://archive.org/download/CannoloAwardLogo/CANNOLO-AWARD.png" width="200"></a>

Please change the ‘width’ to match your sidebar. Click here for higher resolutions.

    1. Thanks to you Amelia, it's a pleasure! And thanks also for displaying the award on your sidebar, much appreciated 🙂

  1. Wow, I'm also a italian foodblogger posting in english really italian recipes! I'll look forward to this award 😀 😀

  2. I would love to be included in this award since my blog is titled NYC Style and a little Cannoli. I write about Italian food since I am 100% neopolitan and cannoli is one of my fave desserts. Hoping someone can nominate me!!

  3. Paolo, thank you so much for this fantastic award. MyLittleVespa is honoured for the good word we put out there and it's great to see so many other bloggers being recognised this way. Grazie 🙂

    1. My pleasure, Gino, your articles on authentic Italian culture and food are fantastic pieces. I'm going to go in order and read them all!

  4. 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

  5. Thank you so much fo my Canolo Award Paolo. It's wondeful to be listed with such fantastic Italian food blogs. I love cooking authentic Italian food and its so nice to be noticed.

    1. Absolutely Marina! Welcome and congratulations, you definitely qualify for the award! Looking forward to getting to know your blog.

    1. Ilaria, of course! I'm very happy to have discovered your blog – I especially love your Tips and Tricks. Keep up the good work!

  6. 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?


  7. 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: http://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!

    1. You are very welcome! It's my pleasure, very happy to have found your blog. Thanks for helping make the true food of Italy more known to the rest of the world.

  8. Ciao Paolo!
    Piacere, sono Wanita =) I am an American married to a Sicilian living in Sicily (mamma mia, I know!) On my blog, you'll find some authentic Sicilian recipes (given to me by my mother-in-law and elderly Sicilian neighbor…qualifies for authentic right? And basically my life in Sicily. I'd love to be considered for the conolo award. Grazie Mille =) my blog and a sample of a Sicilian recipe: http://anamericaninsicily.com/?s=sara%27s+cavatelli

    1. Hi Wanita, yes! It does qualify you for authentic 🙂 Congratulations – I've already added you to the list. BTW, I find the reversed Italian flag in your logo hilarious 🙂

    2. Thanks so much! The award is already on my website. I saw my name on the list but the link isn't working? The flag is reversed because my husband had the vespa going the other direction but I wanted it where it is now…so he reversed the logo…LOL. You are the first to actually notice that! LOL =) Thanks again!

    3. My bad for the link – fixed now 🙂 Congratulations again and thanks so much for displaying the logo! It makes me very happy 🙂

  9. Grazie Paolo, che onore! I'm so thrilled to be in the company of some of my favourite bloghisti. I guess we could call ourselves 'blogherati'. Now i'll have to figure out how to display the logo. Ciao, Cristina

  10. Che bella sorpresa, Paolo! A very nice way to start my week – thank you so much. And thanks for the directions as to how I can add it to my blog page. I will do that as soon as I can! Ancora una volta, grazie mille.

    1. I am having trouble getting the image to show. I will keep working at it! I am in blogger – I copied and pasted the text as you had it – have there been any changes? Ciao, d

      1. Sorry, I think my theme here was converting straight quotes into curly quotes – it should now be fixed – can you try again? Congrats again and thanks for displaying the logo!

  11. Thank you so much Paolo! I am so new that I can’t believe you honored me with this award!Hope to get to know all other people on this list very soon!
