Arancini: Italian ‘bitterballen’


  • Italiaanse bitterballen

This summer we’ve eaten the Italian dish Arancini in the bar of restaurant Filini at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago. We ate this dish several times in Italian restaurants in America and Australia, but the few times I was in Italy, I haven’t seen it on the menu. Although the dish is probably served there as well. I have not seen this dish in the Netherlands before, although it is a simple dish to make. The dish consist out of deep fried balls of risotto with mozzarella cheese and smoked ham in the middle. A simple and delicious starter and because of the Dutch association with the ‘bitterballen’ it could become very popular in the Netherlands as well ^Marjolein van Spronsen
