Chorizo and pearl barley risotto

Pearl barley chorizo risotto

Long gone are the days when pearl barley was a food resigned to the soup or broth pot, languishing at the back of your granny’s cupboard along with the dried prunes and lentils. And hooray for that! Pearl barley, if…

Chicken Marsala pasta
