At the time of the Carthaginians, and then of the Romans, Sardinia became one of the major grain production centres in the Mediterranean. Pasture spread rapidly, thanks to the very favourable environmental and climatic conditions of the island. In fact, many areas of natural beauty that gradually disappeared in other regions of the Italian peninsula have been preserved in Sardinia. From its pristine coastlines, to its high mountains and untouched forests, endemic plants and species thrive on the island. And it is this very phenomenon that paves the way for Sardinia’s rich culinary tradition, which is informed by an abundance of native flora and fauna.
A particularly revered product of this culinary tradition, Pecorino Sardo is one of the oldest cheeses in Sardinia, made from the milk of the island’s 3 million-strong sheep population. The cheese boasts a long history, which has its roots in the times of the Nuragic population (900 BC to 500 BC). Cultivated inland, this unique cheese serves as inspiration for our dainty ravioli filled with potato, pecorino and refreshing mint.
These fresh tortelloni are guaranteed to transport you to a quaint terrazza, situated in one of the island’s many wild meadows, surrounded by bushy vegetation. Feel the summer breeze as it descends from the mountainous terrain, and enjoy a plate of this delicious tortelloni under the shadow of junipers and olive trees. Benvenuto in Sardegna.
