Farro is an ancient grain with a nutty, slightly sweet flavour and a chewy texture. It stays tender and distinct when cooked, deliciously "al dente". Our farro is hulled to allow faster and easier cooking while leaving much of the bran intact to preserve its nutritional properties and ensure a delightful chewy bite, which will hold even when cold. Use in soups, potages, stews or salads.

Fontana FORMIELLO farro is grown in northern and central Italy in the foothills of the Alps and the Apennines.

Rinse farro with cold water, place in a pot, add water (3 parts of water for 1 of farro), salt to taste and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 mins. Drain off any excess liquid and gently fluff in butter or extra virgin olive oil.

Pre-soak farro overnight and cook it for 10 mins.

Fontana FORMIELLO Farro can be cooked as a substitute for rice or potatoes, or as an addition to soups, potages, stew and minestrone or in delicious salads. Use farro as a base for salad or at the place of rice in risotto recipes to make farrotto. Serve it hot for breakfast with sliced peaches and berries, or as a dessert with ricotta cheese and a drizzle of honey.

30 minutes / 10 minutes with pre-soaking

About 11 portions (4 tablespoons / 1.6oz / 45g)
