Who doesn’t love meatballs? They are the mouth-watering dish with endless incarnations around the world. This ultimate collection honours them all, from classically meaty to fish and vegetarian variations, fancy and teeny tiny to giant and rustic.
They are the comforting meal so well-loved that each country has their own speciality and each family has a favourite recipe, often handed down through generations, whether an Italian Nona who made the best polpette or a Spanish Abuela who possessed the secret recipe for outstanding albondigas. Choose them grilled, fried, baked, braised or steamed, they are always supremely tasty, and, luckily for cooks, nearly impossible to get wrong!
