This has been the summer where I’ve fallen back in love with Tennessee. Hence the very southern ingredients in these Sweet Corn & Pimento Cheese Arancini. While a global pandemic and protests reshape the world as we know it, my own life is being reshaped as well. Instead of traveling and working between Paris, Kyoto, and Marrakech as I normally would this time of year, I find myself back in the south. And the verdict is, despite having lived and travelled all over the world, I’m undeniably southern.
它可能不是巴黎,但我学到的东西returning home is that joy isn’t “out there”. And I can be happier splitting a cheese burger and a basket of cornmeal fried oysters on the Tennessee River with a pitcher than I can be in a Michelin starred restaurant sipping orange wine in Paris. Both are lovely, but the reality is it’s who you’re with and who you are, not where you are, that determines how joyful any given experience is.
I’ll continue to travel when the world reopens again, but my desire to live abroad has been greatly diminished by the discovery that there is just as much joy to be found here as in all the canals of Venice and hot springs of Japan. How your life feels matters more than how it looks. For now, during these strange times, I’m trading my linen frocks for cut off Levi’s and a white t-shirt. And the menu includes a lot of BBQ, sweet corn, summer tomatoes, and pimento cheese. If you need me, I’ll be down by the creek.
在一个典型的西西里南部的riff，这些香脆，奶油汤圆是一种上瘾的取悦观众和孩子批准。这个配方赚了足够的烩饭来服务4-6人。I recommend cooking it for dinner and then using the leftovers for arancini the next day as the risotto is way too good to just be made for arancini (though of course you can!) If you’ll be serving 4-6 you can double the batch to have plenty of leftovers. I like to make as many as I can and freeze them to keep on hand for an easy appetizer.
½ cup white wine
4 slices fried Bacon, crumbled (optional, omit if vegetarian)
Oil for frying (we used peanut oil)
Hot pepper jelly or marinara for serving, optional
Stirring frequently, add the warm broth one ladleful at a time, adding more as each is absorbed. The risotto is done when the rice is al dente. This should take about 20-30 minutes and the rice should be bubbling as it cooks. To see if it’s done you can use the “smear test” and smear a grain between your fingers. There should still be the faintest bit of chalky white in the center of the grain.
Using one hand for wet and one for dry, lightly dredge the balls in flour, shaking off any excess, and then dip them in the egg mixture before rolling them in the bread crumb mixture, gently pressing to coat well, and then place them on a parchment lined sheet tray. At this point they can be frozen up to 3 months or refrigerated covered for up to 3 days before frying. Chill in the fridge while you heat the oil.
