2017 Home Design In Review: “Angles in the Details” Kitchen Design

As 2017 draws to a close, ‘Design Your Lifestyle’ takes a look back at some of our favorite kitchen designs and home designs of the year. In our previous 2017 Home Design In Review article, we showed you a “Farm Meets City Sleek” kitchen design that utilized neutral colors, metallic tones and statement lighting to brilliant effect.

Now, we take a look at another Peter Salerno Inc. kitchen design that “wow”-ed us in 2017. “The Angles Are In the Details” is a traditional kitchen design that stuns with its crisp features, Old-World charm and attention to finer points.

From Peter Salerno’s Kitchen: Summer Farro Salad Recipe

Peter Salerno Inc. has been searching for a fresh Italian summer salad recipe to share with our readers, and we’ve finally settled on our favorite salad recipe for the summer of 2014.

This fantastic summer farro salad comes courtesy of Food & Wine (F&W) and their star chef Marco Canora.

Famous for his Tuscan-inspired dishes, Marco Canora’s experience has taken him from Gramercy Tavern in NYC to Cibreo in Florence, Italy, and back again. Canora now calls Hearth & Terroir Wine Bar in New York City home.

If you’ve never eaten farro, it’s all the rage lately in a variety of dishes. From salads to soups to meat dishes, farro is a versatile hulled wheat grain that is well-loved by savvy eaters as a great source of fiber and a “smart carbohydrate”.

This summer salad combines the hearty, nutty flavor of farro with the crunch of carrots, celery and onions and the freshness of cucumbers and tomatoes. We’re sure you’ll love it at your table as much as Peter Salerno and his family love it at theirs.

Recipe: Summer Farro Salad (courtesy Food&Wine, Marco Canora)

Ingredients

  1. 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 small yellow onion, quartered
  3. 1 small carrot, halved
  4. 1 celery rib, halved
  5. 12 ounces farro (1 3/4 cups)
  6. 5 cups water
  7. Kosher salt
  8. 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  9. Freshly ground pepper
  10. 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  11. 1 small seedless cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
  12. 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  13. 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Preparation

  1. In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the yellow onion, carrot and celery, cover and cook over moderately low heat until barely softened, about 5 minutes. Add the farro and stir to coat with oil. Add the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the farro is barely tender, about 10 minutes; season with salt. Cover and simmer until the farro is al dente, about 10 minutes longer. Drain the farro and discard the onion, carrot and celery. Let cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 1/3 cup of olive oil with the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the farro, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes and basil, season with salt and pepper and serve.
