The first time I encountered farro was 4-5 years ago during a birthday dinner at Boston’s Ten Tables (so great, please visit).  It’s a firm but chewy whole grain that holds up well when cooked and is very good for you!  In fact, my friend Amy created a farro stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving.  Farro might be a little harder to find, so you may need to hit up a gourmet grocer (or buy online).  Either way, it’s a good thing to have in the pantry.Here is a picture of a nice tree on my street.    View high resolution
