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

A far cry from Tuscany’s familiar gently rolling hills, Monte Argentario’s appealing mix of mountain, ocean, island and lagoon makes it one of Italy’s hidden treasures, writes Emiko Davies.

Kisume, Melbourne

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.

The Watson and The Larwill Studio

The Watson, Adelaide

The Watson, Adelaide

Born in the mid-1930s in the Gibson Desert, Tommy Watson is a stockman, a Pitjantjatjara elder and one of Australia's most celebrated artists. And now he's a hotel - The Watson, named for him, opened last month in the chic inner-Adelaide suburb of Walkerville, a world away from the artist's arid homeland. An original triptych, Anumarapiti, hangs in the foyer, and prints bearing the artist's intense colours and motifs appear throughout the hotel's 140 suites, apartments and public spaces. The Art Series Hotel Group opened another property last month: The Larwill Studio, in Melbourne's Parkville. Named after the late David Larwill, known for his "figurative expressionist" style, each of the studio's 96 workspaces (aka guest rooms) have sketchpads and art books for inspiration.
