Ingredients Jump to Instructions ↓

  1. 4 ounces farro soaked in cold water for 90 minutes or so (If you cannot find farro, you could use cooked wild rice instead.)

  2. 2 pounds whole chestnuts

  3. 6 tablespoons olive oil

  4. 1 red onion peeled and chopped

  5. 3 stalks celery, chopped

  6. 4 ounces pancetta, diced (You do want dice here, so avoid the case-ready packages of sliced pancetta. Better yet, start curing your own .)

  7. 5-6 cloves of garlic, peeled

  8. 2-4 dried red chiles

  9. 1 quart chicken stock. (This is no place for your clarified, blonde stocks. Think more Anne Bancroft, less Paris Hilton.)

  10. Salt and pepper to taste.
