How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the farro and cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat it with the oil. Add the wine and cook, stirring until it is absorbed, about 2 minutes.

Step 2    

Add the water, 1 cup at a time, and cook, stirring, until absorbed between additions. The farro is done when it is al dente and suspended in the thick, creamy liquid, about 25 minutes total.

Step 3    

Stir in the heavy cream, the cheese and butter and simmer until the risotto has thickened, about 5 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Review Body: This is an absolutely fabulous dish.  Every time I make it, I get requests for the recipe.  I did make changes to the original recipe - use chicken broth instead of water and add mushrooms - either baby bella or a mixture of shitake, oyster, and button mushrooms - and saute with the onions.
