I had Farro for the first time recently at a party at a winery. I thought it was fantastic served under grilled lamb. It's a little crunchier than barley, and has a subtle nutty flavor. You'll love it with grilled meat! It's a little hard to find, but try an Italian supermarket or Whole foods. You can also substitute "spelt", but get Farro if you can find it. (also known as "emmer"). This is an extremely heathly side dish with lots of fiber along with it's great taste!
