The roots of this seed inspired the blog itself. As an ancient grain, “farro” harkens to a time when life was slower and cooking was sacred. With the hyper-convenience of modern life, many of us can only operate a microwave. Enjoying a home cooked meal is now a luxury. We at Farro aim to remedy that; to weave our food origins back into everyday life.
Our editorial scope is simple. By contextualizing each post with simple ingredient explanations and fun history facts, we hope to inspire you to create your own unique dishes. While our recipes can incorporate industrial food, we recommend sourcing locally when at all possible. Seasonal produce and free-range meats always yield the best flavor. Most of all, we believe they contribute to a healthier ecosystem and a more connected community.
