This pantry staple, farro, is destined for chianti. I plan to use it risotto style, recipe courtesy of David Rocco's website. It is also particularly nice added to soups as a barley substitute.
While we here in Canada have been enjoying tales of David's Italian culinary exploits for quite some time, those South of the border can soon be living la dolce vita vicariously through David (his wife Nina and adorable twin daughters) as well. His show recently aired on US television.
