The Heart of the Matter

Another efford to traslate in english. This time is one of my personal recipes with the beloved “farro del Pungolo”, a special type of farro original of the Viterbo area, closed to Roma. The name of the recipe comes from the fact that I did it with what remained me after a 24-people picnic.


Doses for one person

50 gr farro

50 gr barley (orzo perlato)

4 -5 sun-dried tomatoes

Some rocket (rucola in Italian, rughetta in Rome)

1 tablespoon of grated Pecorino Romano

Vegetable stock

Balsamic vinegar

In a pad put sun-dried tomatoes with some water, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Boil for 5-10 min, till water is absorbed by tomatoes.

Boil the water with some vegetable stock and add first the Farro and after 10 minutes the barley. Cook for other 20-30 minutes.

Cut in small pieces rocket and dried tomatoes.

Finally, put the farro and orzo under the water in order to stop their cooking.

Add other ingredients.

That’s all.
