Farro with Cherries and Walnuts

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to participate in the filming of a TV show.  While that was fun and I’m still awaiting to see when it will air, the other positive was meeting some fellow food writers such as Rachel from Little Chef Big Appetite.

I have been following her blog posts for a couple months now and she has some great recipes that you should definitely checkout. I can tell we have some similar food tastes with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit in what she makes too.  I was particularly interested in a recent Instagram post of her’s showing a farro and cherry recipe.

Our family just finished spending sometime on vacation in Northern Michigan where Traverse City is, the Cherry Capital, and we had plenty of great tasting cherries the couple weeks we were there. I was lucky enough when we returned to LA to find some cherries at Bristol Farms from Hood River, Oregon.  They weren’t as great as Michigan cherries, but they were pretty close.

You might still find some fresh cherries at the market, but hurry fast as the season is at its end.
