Where and What to Eat

One Great Plate: Farro

One Great Plate: Farro

When the great carb-backlash happened, it sent us all looking for alternative grains, whole grains, that could carry a dish with great flavor and not make you feel like you’re eating a bowl of twigs. Farro has risen to a really nice place in chef’s hearts. The ancient grain has been used in the Mediterranean for centuries, and it delivers a nutty complexity, much like a lighter brown rice. Restaurant Alma pairs it with the sage roasted duck and roasted mushrooms, I’ve had a killer farro risotto at Heartland before, and Mill Valley Kitchen pairs a farro salad with scallops and lemon kale.
