  • About

These little rice fritters are a speciality of Campania, where they are made with mozzarella and known as supplì al telefono, meaning telephone wires, because the molten cheese forms long strings when the fritters are cut open. My version is made with basil and creamy Gorgonzola, so you don’t get the stringy effect of the cheese but you do get a wonderful, melting blue cheese fondue in the centre. Serve on a pool of tomato sauce.
