Farro recipes

Farro can be used in almost any dish, from a robust salad to accompany hearty beer-glazed beef short ribs to a new take on risotto with mushrooms, leek and parmesan. Here are 14 ways with this versatile grain.

Aløft

There's nothing new about Nordic interiors - blond timbers, concrete surfaces, warm, mid-century charm without the twee - and thank heavens for that. It's a style that augments the beauty of everything around it, in this case, gorgeous Hobart harbour, which makes up one whole wall. What is new here, however, is the food - by veterans of Garagistes, which once dazzled diners down the road, Vue de Monde in Melbourne and Gordon Ramsay worldwide. There's a strong Asian bent, but with Tasmanian ingredients. In fact, the kitchen's love of the local verges on obsessive - coconut milk in an aromatic fish curry is replaced with Tasmanian-grown fig leaf simmered in cream to mimic the flavour. Other standouts include a gutsy red-braised lamb with gai lan and chewy cassia spaetzle, pigs' ears zingy with Sichuan pepper and a fresh, springy berry dessert. While the food is sourced locally, the generous wine list spans the planet. 

Secret Tuscany

Grilled apricot salad with jamon and Manchego

Here we've scorched apricots on the grill and served them with torn jamon, shaved Manchego and peppery rocket leaves. Think of it as a twist on the good old melon-prosciutto routine. The mixture would also be great served on charred sourdough.

Mango and yoghurt parfait with passionfruit and pineapple salad


You'll need

1 small mango, coarsely chopped 100 gm Greek-style yoghurt 85 gm heavy cream (45% fat), lightly whisked 80 gm mascarpone 80 gm caster sugar 3 egg yolks ½ pineapple, finely diced Pulp of 2 passionfruit 2 tbsp thinly sliced mint   Palm sugar caramel 150 gm light palm sugar, coarsely chopped 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped 80 ml Malibu coconut rum

Method

  • 01
  • Process mango in a food processor until smooth, then pass through a fine sieve into a bowl to yield 200gm. Add yoghurt, whisk to combine and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Whisk cream and mascarpone in a bowl to soft peaks and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Stir caster sugar and 60ml water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook until mixture reaches 121C on a sugar thermometer (6-8 minutes). Meanwhile, whisk yolks in an electric mixer on low speed. Gradually add sugar syrup and whisk until cooled to room temperature (4-5 minutes). Fold in mango mixture, then fold in cream mixture and spoon into an 8cm x 20cm loaf tin lined with plastic wrap. Smooth top, freeze until firm (3-4 hours).
  • 04
  • For palm sugar caramel, stir palm sugar, vanilla bean and seeds and 80ml water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the simmer, add Malibu (be careful as hot caramel will spit), cook until amber-caramel coloured (20-25 minutes), set aside to cool, remove vanilla bean.
  • 05
  • Combine pineapple, passionfruit and mint in a bowl. Dip loaf tin in hot water, unmould parfait then thickly slice and place on chilled serving plates. Spoon over pineapple salad, drizzle with palm sugar caramel and serve.
