Fabulous food photographer Simone v/d Berg of Simone’s Kitchen has started again with her photography challenges. I’m so happy with that so I (obviously) participate. It’s all just for fun and of course to practice food photography which has become a passion for me… Last summer I got to know her as I did a private workshop to learn more. I was a fun day and very instructive. You can see the blog post about it here!
The very first challenge of 2014 is now a fact and the theme is RAW!! After some thinking I decided I wanted to photograph an ingredient I only got to know here in Italy and loved it ever since: FARRO!
Farro is a type of wheat and very popular here in Italy. I eat it at least once a week, in a soup or as a salad for lunch or dinner (especially in summer). If I prepare a salad of farro I just use it in the same way as I would when preparing a rice salad…. Still, there is a lot of confusion about what farro is exactly. Read this below I found on the internet:
You will get to see more of farro this coming year as I will post some recipes of dishes based on farro!
Today a photo I made yesterday of plain farro. Hope you like it!
