I have a question about the recipe "Farro Salad with Mushrooms and Pecorino Cheese" from ext212.. How is this different from the Farro Salad with Roasted Mushrooms and Parmesan posted by Merrill? Are either of these suitable for making in advance for a picnic?

It looks like the difference is the type of cheese and the prep of the cheese, one is crumbled for a rougher texture, the other is shaved. Both should work well for a picnic. Enjoy!

Pecorino is a lot saltier than Parmesan, so the flavor would be a bit different (and you would need to taste the one with Pecorino more carefully before adding salt). You can shave either type of cheese (Pecorino Romano is usually sold crumbled/grated). And I agree, either one would be fine for a picnic!
