Farinaccio is a wild green that tastes a little like spinach. It is named so because, when you rub your fingers on the leaves, it leaves a powder behind that’s a little like flour (farina in Italian). . I love the variety of greens I find at my local market. In fact, I love the variety of greens in Italian cuisine. I am sure there have been an array of foraged greens in all cuisines, but I certainly didn’t taste any of them when I was growing up in a supermaket-stocked kitchen in the UK. . Check my story today to see what I cooked this up with :-)
