Summer Farro Salad

June 25, 2010

This week, A&M make Jennifer Perillo's Summer Farro Salad and are joined by special guest Kim Severson, esteemed food writer at the New York Times and author of Spoon Fed: How Eight Cooks Saved My Life. They debate the pronunciation of "farro", spill, improvise, and crack up on several occasions (that Kim is one funny lady).

For more of the hilarious Kim Severson, follow her on Twitter @kimseverson, check out her website, or pick up a copy of Spoon Fed.

This week's videos were once again shot and edited by talented filmmaker Elena Parker -- thanks Elena!

Always love the guest-star videos, but this week was especially fun. Can't wait to read Kim's book.

I can't find farro in my city and am dying to make this dish. Is there anything I can substitute for the farro? Please help a hungry woman in Vancouver Canada!

Barley would work nicely too.

This salad is so perfect for summer - can't wait to try it. Gals, this video is awesome! So FUN! I want to be Kim's new best friend - she is hysterical and she is clearly easy to be with - all three of you are completely relaxed and having a blast. PLUS, sharing some good info and a yummy recipe. I give it two thumbs up! ;-)
