Sa Sardigna as I like to call it has all the diversities of a Continent, millenniums of history left in this incredible island precious traditions, arts, lifestyles, languages, sounds and a territory that is different then any other region in Italy.
Sardinia is an Island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea far away from the rest of Italy here the traditions are so strong you can feel in the air, people does not have to pass by Sardinia to go anywhere and not all the streets take you to Sardinia (like the Romans will said for their city), but people come to this island because is different and the isolation from the rest of Europe make it a special place to visit and enjoy. Imagine you arrive in Sardigna and while you come out of the plane the seaís breeze the warm wind and the smell of the myrtle and rosemary kisses your face and Welcomes you wile a glass of fresh and crisp Vermentino is waiting for you a the bar.
You can stay in Sardigna and visit the many Sardignas (there are 8) each one very different from the other. Letís start with Il Cagliaritano (Sarrabus, Trexenta, Campidano) which is the area around Sardignaís capitol Cagliari, here the flavors come from the sea.Cagliari surprises you with is architectonics, it dresses is city with stiles that come from far away (Phoenicians, Arabs, Romans and Spanish all pass from is streets), fish is the main ingredient in food, prepared in many different ways from simple grilled drizzled with the light olive oils from this area to more complicated versions like Sa Burrida (cat fish cooked in tomato sauce and vinegar, or in green sauce with garlic, fish liver and walnuts). There are also numerous recipes for malloreddus (small wheat gnocchi) different in size, color and taste because of the use of saffron and vegetables but almost always served alla campidanese (with tomato sauce, chopped sausage and grated pecorino).
