Donatella Arpaia reveals how to make the perfect meatballs
Unless you grew up rolling meatballs in your nonna’s kitchen, forget everything you think you know about making this classic Italian staple. The recipe looks simple, but a lot more goes into creating a meatball worthy of a spot atop a saucy mound of spaghetti.
Celebrity chef Donatella Arpaia, a regular judge on Food Network’s Iron Chef America, knows a thing or two about rolling the perfect, classic Italian meatball. Not only is her recipe based off what her mother and grandmother used (you can’t get more authentic than that!), her balls are award-winning and a favourite dish at her restaurant, Prova Pizzabar in New York City.
