(t-shirt by Arancino or arancina, male or female? In the East of the island, the snack - shaped more like a pear, with a pointy top and a wider bottom - takes on the male form (‘arancino’), whereas in the West (including Trapani!), it is known as a curvy perfectly round female - ‘arancina’. Who is right? Well, let us leave this question unanswered… :)

Our favourite arancine from Angelino (Trapani)

Arancine recipe:


Although the most traditional fillings include red meat sauce (arancina al ragu) or mozzarella, ham and butter (arancina al burro), there seem to be a never-ending variety of its flavours - from seafood and various cheesy options to pesto, vegetables and even pistachios (famous in Catania)!
