Courses 2023/24

For our new 2023/24 courses, see list below:

Italian cookery:  Arancini

Arancini are Italian rice balls that are stuffed with a savoury filling, coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried. The most common arancini fillings are: al ragù or al sugo, filled with ragù, mozzarella or caciocavallo cheese, and al burro, filled with ham and mozzarella or bechamel sauce.

A number of regional variants exist, differing in their fillings and shape. Arancini al ragù from eastern Sicily have a conical shape, inspired by the volcano Etna.
