Loved learning all about whole grains from Maria Speck, author of Simply Ancient Grains and fellow Dame (Northeast Chapter). Tim Mazurek, Lottie + Doof food blogger led the discussion. Sandra Holl (new Chicago Dame) and crew at Floriole Café prepared a delicious tasting of recipes from the book. Did you know that Italians use the term Farro to refer to 3 ancient wheat varities? farro piccolo (aka German einkorn), farro medio (emmer) and farro grande (spelt) – Any ideas on where to find farro piccolo in Chicago?
