On the cafe Ke Palle Arancine d’Autore, chef Guiseppe Di Forti rolls and deep-fried balls of gooey, tacky, parboiled rice to make arancine, a avenue meals favourite in Sicily. It’s “maybe the queen of Sicilian avenue meals,” says Di Forti.
Whereas conventional arancine consists of simply rice, cheese, and tomato sauce, Di Forti serves quite a lot of the tacky fried rice balls — which is likely to be filled with meat, tomato, eggplant, or different components — to increase its enchantment. “We actually needed to create a global product from the Sicilian custom, by including these new flavors, as a result of at the moment the custom was static, stationary,” he says.
