What’s an arancini? The name is derived from their resemblance to little oranges when they are fully cooked. “Arancia” is the word for orange in Italian and “Arancini” translates to little orange in English.

There are many variations to the recipes but the most common is the Classico version using a filling of creamy mozzarella and a ragu (meat in tomato sauce).
