PHILOSOPHY

What we do daily

to express the

philosophy of our cuisine

 

 

Strong bounds with nature

We avoid use of GMO products and pay a particular attention to organic products even with the support of our small vegetable garden and especially with the “garden of the cooking herbs”.

Respect for all seasons

We place great emphasis on product research, considering the territoriality, seasonality and freshness. For a food always in harmony with nature.

Our fresh fish

We choose the freshest fish of the Mediterranean sea, even the poorest and most unusual species, but rich in flavor and nutrients, that make each dish an unforgettable one.

Attention to health

We eliminate all  hydrogenated fats and use animal ones, but with sparingly. The extra virgin olive oil, of Italian origin, is the vegetable fat that we use with more generously .

Products of excellence

We produce fresh pasta with wheat flour,  grown and processed in our land, according to the ancient traditions of “grinding stone mill” or with using only wheat durum wheat.

 
Selected meat

We select meat with great care, using only the first quality, also grown in wilderness in central Sardinia’s small farms.

 

 
Taste and health

We use salt in measure and use aromatic herbs to enhance the taste of food. Many vegetables, legumes, cereals and fish, following the Mediterranean culinary culture.

Our cheese

We search for our cheeses in the hills of central Sardinia, where farms produce milk of great quality, thanks to all the herbs that naturally regenerate over time.

 
Aesthetics of the dish

We consider the  beauty of a dish an important  component of its goodness. Attention to details, portioning and arranging the plates,  for a multisensory experience between taste and aesthetics. 

 

THE CUISINE

Antonio Erriu, Executive Chef, was born in Sardinia, the cradle of an ancient culinary tradition; his professional growth goes through a long and qualified journey of research in various corners of the world, going along with great humility and competence. He combines and blends the best schools and cooking traditions, national and international, offering a simple, fragrant, light and fanciful cuisine.

 

“For me, cooking is a living passion. I adore working raw ingredients, without changing them too much with respect to their original nature and flavours, which must harmonize without becoming confused, each maintaining its own essence while changing into a dish of excellence. Mine is a constantly evolving cuisine, which takes its cue both from the traditional recipes of our island and new traits brought from all around the Mediterranean. Naturally, I never forget the quest for and processing of dishes and foods from far away, thanks to the experience of our kitchen brigade, acquired in years spent in various parts of the world.”.
