The Flavor Experience
Farro is a type of hulled, hard wheat, and is the perfect addition in everything from soup to salads. Similar in taste and texture to more the more commonly used barley, farro has been a part of the Italian culinary tradition for more than 2,000 years. It has a slighty nutty flavor, and maintains a nice crunch, even after soaking and cooking.
Farro is rich in fiber and, being a whole grain, keeps you feeling fuller longer. Now in its third-generation, Campanini is a family-run business, producing several varieties of custom-milled rice, naturally grown in Lombardia and Veneto, at their own specialized riseria in northern Italy. Each step in their small batch production is overseen by a member of the family, ensuring the rice they sell is of the highest quality, without any chemical treatment.
If mealtimes were a theater production, farro could be cast in a starring role or a supporting one. It tastes just as delicious as the main ingredient in cold Tabbouleh salad as it does as the base of a hot breakfast cereal, topped with fruit and honey.
