Everything that you’ve seen here is locally farmed, produced and hand crafted from age-old traditions that still ring true today. (I’m still, slowly learning the art of patience in the kitchen.)
I try my best to buy only products (fruit, veg, meats, cheese and wine) which are produced in Sardinia. It’s difficult sometimes but I can proudly say that 80% of the products consumed in my house come from Sardinian farms.
