Cooking instruction summary:

Procedures 1 For the wine-roasted garlic: Preheat oven to 350°. Place garlic cloves in the center of a 1-foot by 1-foot sheet of aluminum foil. Top with the honey and wine. Fold the aluminum foil up into a pouch. Place pouch on a baking sheet, and then transfer to the oven. Cook until garlic is soft, about 45 minutes. Set aside, turn off oven, and let cool. Then squeeze the garlic out of their skins and set aside. 2 For the farro salad: While the garlic is cooking, combine farro, salt, and six cups of water in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until tender, about 25 minutes. When done, drain the farro in a colander, and then dry for 10 minutes on a paper-towel-lined tray. 3 Core both apples, and cut into ½-inch cubes. Toss them immediately into a medium-sized bowl with the lemon juice and enough water to cover. 4 In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 5 Pour the almonds into a medium skillet set over medium heat. Cook, shaking the skillet often, until toasted. Transfer almonds to a large bowl along with the farro, craisins, parsley, mozzarella, and wine-roasted garlic. Drain the apples and add them, too. Toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Food Trivia

The largest item found on any menu is roasted camel which is still served at some Bedouin weddings and was offered by royalty in Morocco several hundred years ago. The camel is cleaned and then stuffed with one whole lamb, 20 chickens, 60 eggs, and 110 gallons of water, among other ingredients.

Food Joke

Yeltsin, Clinton and Bill Gates were invited to have dinner with God. During dinner he told them: I need three important people to send my message out to all the people: "Tomorrow I will destroy the earth." Yeltsin immediately called together his cabinet and told them: "I have two really bad news items for you: 1) God really exists and 2) Tomorrow He will destroy the earth." Clinton called an emergency meeting of the Senate and Congress and told them: "I have good news and bad news: 1) The GOOD news is that God really does exist 2) The BAD news is, tomorrow He is going to destroy the earth." Bill Gates went back to Microsoft and very happily announced: "I have two fantastic announcements: 1) I am one of the three most important people on earth 2) The Year 2000 problem is solved."
