FARRO” is one of the oldest grains, an ancient form of wheat (also called emmer), and cooks like pearl barley or rice, with no soaking. It has a wonderful nutty flavor and is quite nutritious. Every summer, “SERENADERS” get to enjoy this fabulous grain in various forms during our program in UMBRIA, Italy. Here is a wonderful recipe by one of our favorite Italian-American chefs, Lidia Bastianich. Enjoy!! http://www.lidiasitaly.com/recipes/detail/985
