I remember well the joy of biting into (too many) suppli in Italy. It amazes me that there are not more foods of this type -- it seems perfect in every way.

I love suppli'! (although my husband insists on calling them arancini-- he's from Milan and thinks any south-of-Florence vocab needs to be banned in our house). I'm going to try these next time I have leftover risotto. Love your site-- great pictures.

If I'm not mistaken, "gli arancini" are orignally from Sicilia...although, for some reason, you find them in Milano everywhere. While "i supplĂ­" are orignally from Roma and the Lazio region, but rarely found in Milano. The difference from the two is that the rice in "gli arancini" is mixed with sauce and they're not as round, while "i supplĂ­' are like the recipe above...no sauce and round. They're both delicious!!!

Oh my God! This is too much!
Every time you post a recipe I feel so blessed to be a subscriber of your blog.
My mother was Italian and my father was French which makes me 1/2 Italian and 1/2 French, but I never heard of suppli. I am going to repair that mistake very soon.
