My Cherried and Chickpea'd Farro is up. (Was supposed to be couscous but I adapted to a "greater" grain!) ;-)

You all are killing me with the pick for the new chef!! Hmmmm...who to pick. I have a huge crush on both Oliver and Flay! Plus, Bittman has such a HUGE array of recipes. I'm going to have to sleep on this one;D
