Arancini (Deep Fried Risotto Balls). With Kathryn Joel

Get Cooking

Join Kathryn to learn how to use up your leftover risotto, the Italian way. We’ll be hand rolling our leftover Risotto into Arancini, delicious stuffed and deep fried risotto balls. We’ll be using a cheese stuffing, but we’ll talk you through alternatives too. Plus we’ll teach you our favourite Arrabiata Sauce to serve with your Arancini. And if you’d like to make the risotto with us, join us for our Risotto class at 6. You can make a squash risotto with us, or a simple saffron Risotto instead, we’ll tell you how.

Ingredients for Saffron Risotto*: risotto rice (carnaroli or vialone nano), butter, olive oil, shallots, vegetable or chicken stock, saffron, Italian white wine, parmesan, lemon.
