To make these for yourself, use the following recipe:

Saffron Arancini

1 oz. of diced onion
1 oz. oil
2 cups of Carnaroli Rice
.5 oz of saffron (soaked in about 3 cups of water)
2 oz. of Unsalted Butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat a large pan, add oil, onions, rice and sautée.
Slowly add water.
Keep Stirring, slowly keep adding water, and add Saffron.
Finish with butter, Salt and pepper.
Cool down the risotto for about 15-20 mins
Then, take about 1-2 oz. of risotto in your hand and spare it out so that you can make a risotto ball.
Add some Bolognese sauce (Mix it up and add cheese or anything else you may want!)
Cover it up and slowly turn into a small ball.
Place the Arancini balls in flour, then drop into egg wash, and finally put them into the bowl of breadcrumbs.
Fry (at 325 F)for about 4 minutes and finish in the oven for 5-6 minutes.
