Phantom Gourmet: Arancini

BOSTON (CBS) – A Sicilian recipe that dates back hundreds of years has suddenly become a trendy dish at restaurants.

Dan Andelman of the Phantom Gourmet gives us a taste of the area’s best arancini.

At Santoro’s Sicilian Trattoria in Dedham, everything is big, from the cheese-smothered garlic bread to the thick-as-a-brick lasagna, to the arancini the size of a softball.

Four Square Restaurant in Braintree is a neighborhood spot known for straight-forward dishes like meatloaf, mac and cheese, and bread pudding. But one of the most popular items is the Italian arancini.

Da Vinci on Columbus Ave in Park Square makes a more upscale arancini, with a crispy light exterior stuffed with creamy risotto and hand-made mozzarella cheese.

Some other Phantom favorites for arancini include Stella in the South End and La Morra in Brookline Village.

For more food and fun, watch the Phantom Gourmet Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on myTV38.
