We here in the United States are not used to cooking and dealing with grains in their whole form. It can be intimidating not knowing how to prepare them. I first heard about farro while watching Fusion grain cooking with Chef Brad. I am getting over my fears of whole grain cooking with the help of his show. I am learning new skills and experiencing new foods. I was intrigued by it and searched some out at the health food store. We enjoyed that we bought. We made several dishes with it. I am looking forward to purchasing some more and making some new dishes with it.
Farro has a nice nutty flavor and chewy texture when cooked. It is a wonderful addition to the diet. It can be used for soups, salads, risotto, pilaf and such. It is becoming trendy in the restaurants on the east and west coast. It is becoming more available (I have even heard that may be available at Costco wholesale club). It is a wonderful grain and may be worth the efforts to try and get your hands on some.
here are some links and helps to find some recipes for farro. I hope you will look into searching out some for yourself. Go ahead try something new.
