While the sun is shining, I’ve been trying to capture little moments in the high-summer evenings with a glass of good wine and something to nibble. A simple celebratory moment for when the kids are down and Sofie and I can catch up uninterrupted.

We tend to eat dinner early with the boys so find ourselves looking for something around 7pm. A little plate of arancini is a true treat. Golden breadcrumbed balls of risotto rice with cheese are perfect to make if you whip up a summer risotto and have some leftovers in the pan. Oozing with stringy mozzarella, they transport you to a little Italian eatery, even if you don’t quite get there in person this summer.
