We’re digging the food by executive chef Victor LaPlaca at NYC trattoria and crudo bar Isola. Next up: arancini, the only Italian fried rice recipe you’ll ever need. 

Arancini are Italian rice balls made by breading and deep-frying portions of risotto. If an Italian restaurant is worth its salt, they’ll have a thin, crisp shell on the outside and molten cheese-laden risotto within. These arancini are infused with saffron, for an earthy, aromatic note.
