Sardinian cuisine or "buono mangiare in Sardegna"

Sardinia is not only island of high mountains and wonderful beaches, but also a place with tons of fruit trees and other local yummy products..This entry is dedicated to some specialties of the Sardinian cuisine. As a starter one may always take Sardinian cheese: "pecorino sardo" or "dolce sardo" or "formaggio di capra"...
The Sardinian pasta "malloreddus" (on the picture above) is usually served with meat and tomato sauce, while "risotto marinara" offers the abundance of seafood in rice.
And now...off to the sweets:-))
The "pardulas" are one of the most famous pastry here. There are made with fresh ricotta cheese and orange or lemon peels....The ones on the picture were made by Sabrina, the owner of our B&B in Chia. And last but not least lets enjoy the most famous Sardinian dessert: "seadas" or "sebadas". A dough pancake filled with ricotta cheese filling, grilled and then served warm with some yummy local honey on the top....

I love the way the cheese is served. I should try doing this with different herbs.

@Roj: the risotto was amazing! a bit too fat, but hey its Italy;-))
@Murasaki: thanks for compliment! its me who made the cheese platter, we bought the cheese at a market with local products and the Agriturismo we were staying had a huge flower-spice-garden, from where we got fresh rosmarin (the big basilico i also fetched at the market:-)
