  1. Great posting. I have made several of these — as you know I am especially fond of the raw apple cake. The massaged kale is next on my list to try.

    Do you know that you cannot find farro in the Sequim area? I must remember to shop for some on my next Seattle trip. J

  2. True, the raw apple cake is amazing.
    Bluebird Grains Farms farro is pretty mainstream around Seattle these days and they were recently featured in Sunset mag. Check out the Bluebird Farms website. I think you can order online. Or I can get some for you.
