Farro With Onion and Pancetta
1) Heat up some olive oil in a pan and saute the onion and the pancetta.
I was at the Villa Julia, the incredible Etruscan museum here in Rome, yesterday and saw pans from Etruscan kitchens that looked exactly like the one pictured above. It is so fun to see how similar ancient kitchen utensils and pans are to modern kitchen utensils and pans. Also, the most incredible vase picturing the different stages of Greek animal sacrifice is in the Villa Julia which all of you interested in ancient food must see! It is incredible, but they would not let me take pictures.
2) Add 1 part farro to 2-3 parts water just like in yesterday's post and cook farro until done. Eat!
This would have been a common dish for the average Roman. Now, you can eat it too! Enjoy!
