If molten arancini are the new mozzarella sticks, I can’t think of a better way to bring home our 100th episode. Tune into this celebration station ASAP!!! 😘

These arancini are definitely a twist on the classic. The ones I know include saffron to color the rice as well as tiny bits of parsley and/or a few peas in the rice, a dollop of tomato sauce in the center with a cube of mozzarella and finished into an iconic cone shape. Your gourmet version does look delicious though!

Why add wine if you are just cooking off alcohol and only want the acidity? White Grape juice??? Golly Molly, waste of time and expensive ingredient.

I feel bad because I feel like judged Molly before because I compared her to Brad, Andy, Chris and Claire like she’s not as happy go lucky and I think it was really unfair of me. Molly I think you’re wonderful and I’m sorry it took me a minute to appreciate you for you.

Arancini need tomato sauce too. It’s not just the risotto. They need to be mixed in with just a bit of tomato sauce so they look kind of pink on the inside.

Honestly these are not arancini, writing from sicily i can assure you that these thing are nowhere to be found nor in restourants nor in any sicilian home. 1st: no need for the risotto just put in a pot 2,5lt of tap water for every 1kg of rice (you got the right kind of rice, carnaroli is oK, do not use blond or other stuff), we also put in there saffron to make it yellow. 2nd: the stuffing with just mozzarella does not exists, either with ragù (a very dry one, you will need to make balls of it) or with prosciutto and scamorza held toghether by besciamella (ideally instead of scamorza you will want to use "primo sale" a kind of sicilian cheese) 3rd: you can pass the finished arancini in beaten egg but the better option is to use a light mixture of water and flour, eggs are generally used on the 13th of december because it is tradition not to eat flour or flour derivatives during that day (it is a strange sicilian tradition based on some saint). btw, calabrian chilly is not sicilian, as the name suggest they are from Calabria. We do not dip our arancini, and they tend to be bigger, more or less as a human fist.

Francesco Vultaggio lol there is more than one way to make arancini, every food has variations and really any food is more than its barebones traditional recipe.
undercool Month ago
Bro, this is awesome! But you should include some saffron in the rice, the rice should always be yellow! : ) Cheers from Sicily!

Real quick: Calabrian chilis can’t be Sicilian...they’re literally Calabrian (from Calabria...that’s a different region in Italy...entirely). Arancini are Sicilian. Calabrian chilis are calabrese. Have a nice day.

you wanna know why arancini are always so dry? cause you guys make them THE WRONG WAY! Usually in sicily we cook saffron risotto and stuff the arancinis with ground meat and peas... and the real size of arancinis is about the size of a fist. keep that in mind thanks

I love her and I love this video but making risotto just to immediately turn it into Arancini seems weird to me. It's gotta be one day leftovers at least!

Omg I just made these the other day bc I saw a video/recipe on Facebook and I actually had all the ingredients so I said why not. Recipe called for rice and not risotto though, and I did not put onions since I don't care for them. They actually came out fantastic, and then I see you guys have a video on it, awesome!
Aren't Calabrian chilis from Calabria? Not Sicily?

Man Italians really are the worst. She said that something was Sicilian instead of Calabrian and they decided that the whole recipe is bad and molly is a terrible chef. Must be exhausting to be so uptight and boring 24/7

as an italian from sicily, I remember the arancini big time. Allthough we didn't use risotto, but simple cooked rice and filled them with bolognese sauce and mozzarella. We also shaped them pointy on one side of the ball. Arancini are an enourmus part of my childhood and it's quite interesting to see this method. I'm gonna try to make them this way for christmas.

Honestly, if Brad likes Allison so much, why doesn't he just tell her? Go on a date, get to know each other. Their bond will be strong, like a two-part epoxy.

They look ok, a few observations: 1 the carnaroli to onion ratio is off, too much onion. 2 garlic does not belong in risotto. 3 traditional arancini have also ragù and green peas inside with the melty cheese. 4 the size is off, too little pieces. 5 we don't dip our arancini in anything they are perfectly moist by themselves. Bel lavoro comunque, continuate cosi, bravi!
