(Sahr•DAYN•yah) is the second largest island in the Mediterranean (Sicily is the largest). Separated from the rest of Italy by the Tyrrhenian Sea, it has not fallen victim to the foreign influences brought to the rest of Italy through conquests and has changed little through the centuries.
Due to its climate and geography, Sardegna has little arable land and is sparsely populated. Few vegetables grow in the region, but livestock thrive in the abundant pastures. In Sardegna, agriculture means grazing; raising livestock is backbone of the economy.
In fact, Sardegna accounts for 25% of all
the sheep raised in Italy.
Sheep’s milk is made into
pecorino cheese, one
of the most popular
of all Italian
have no way
to keep the milk fresh
in remote parts of the island, they often make cheese right on the spot. Sardinian pecorino is featured in our Tamatta cun Casu, Carciofi Ripieni di Ricotta and Culingiones and is just one of the several products we have imported especially for this menu.
