Finding farro in Lausanne

I bought some farro in Tuscany in the summer and it was delicious. Since then, I have been looking for it here in Lausanne and have not found it. I tried spelt, which did not taste as good.

Does anyone know of a good specialty Italian food shop that sells the genuine article (preferably the Tuscan version) around Lausanne?

I made Nigella's mushroom farro risotto recipe and it was amazing (but not so much with the spelt ).

Re: Finding farro in Lausanne

Have you tried the Italian traiture at Mon Repos? Think it might be called Mario's. On the corner of rue Marterey and Rue de Langallerie next door to the Parc Mon Repos. They seem to be the real deal. Their meats and cheeses and custom sandwiches are to die for! Hubbie works around the corner and goes there regularly! They have a sort of 'boutique' to the side of the traiture area.

Re: Finding farro in Lausanne

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll check them out tomorrow.

I've tried Globus, a few other specialty delis, and this place recommended on another thread with no luck so far.

Really want it for the weekend so wish me luck.
