Saying Sardinian food immediately reminds to Italian people two words: "porceddu" (piglet) and "carasau" (Sardinian bread).  Sardinian cuisine gratifies the most demanding palates with its simple taste full of natural ingredients. The main ingredient is grain, used to obtain the famous "carasau" bread but also in order to create "malloreddus" and "culorgiones" (typical Sardinian pasta).
  


 A typical pasta produced only in Sardinia is “fregola”. This strange word means "bread crumb", it’s a traditional Sardinian pasta made of durum wheat rolled in small balls. Fregola exquisitely matches with seafood such as clams and shrimps served with a saffron stock and toasted bread.
 Advice for not-veggie people: before leaving the island, go taste the delicious "porceddu", the barbecued suckling pork served on a cork tray full of myrtle branches.
  


 Zuppa Gallurese (soup) is a traditional dish of the Gallura, the northern area of the region from Badesi to San Teodoro which boasts the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia. In this area, you will find some of the best luxury villas for rent.

 For fish lovers, "aragosta algherese" (the characteristic lobster of Alghero) and "tonno di Carloforte" (the characteristic tuna of Carloforte) are two not-to-be-missed dishes.
Sardinia is also famous for bottarga, especially the one made in Cabras. What is bottarga? Basically it’s fish roe, cured and dried with a traditional process. Classic bottarga comes from mullet, the grey mullet, or from tuna. These products have both a different taste and color, more vivid if made with tuna. 
   


 Other two fish delicacies are "spaghetti ai ricci di mare" (sea urchin spaghetti) and "zuppa di arselle" (clam soup).

 Not only fish for the Sardinian cuisine: cold meat and cheeses such as the famous pecorino Sardo.

In order to accomplish this authentic food experience full of traditional tastes and flavors, it’s recommended to match food with wines such as Vermentino di Gallura or Cannonau to end with a perfect and very aromatic myrtle spirit.
