Is there any vegetable more evocative of the warm sun of Italy than the red pepper, slowly roasted for hours until charred and fragrant? From the pepperonata (a colourful accompaniment to grilled meat) to caponata, enjoyed when the sun is at its most ferocious, the humble pepper is an integral part of the culinary landscape on the picture-perfect island of Sardinia.
In Sardinia, you can ask any passerby - albeit in Sardu, the local language - what the secret to the island’s cuisine is and, should you understand the vernacular, they will tell you that the perfect Sardinian dish relies not on elaborate preparation but the use of as few ingredients as possible. Each, however, must be exquisite. And it’s this stripped-back list of ingredients that makes this summer sauce so special. Crafted with vibrant red peppers, San Marzano tomatoes and fresh basil, this sauce, and the island of Sardinia which inspired it, are the pinnacle of Italian summer glamour: simply dressed, vibrant and full of character. Feel the warm island breeze with every bite of this delectable dish. We serve with beautiful pici, a pasta type native to Tuscany, where nonne are traditionally known for painstakingly rolling the shape by hand.
