The importance of eating well is even more pronounced here on this forgotten island. Try your hand at Roasted aubergines with honey, mint, garlic and burrata, or a fresh, zesty salad of Celery, orange, anchovy and hazelnut, followed by Malloreddus (the shell-shaped pasta from the region) with crab, saffron and tomato.
Each recipes and the story behind it will transport you to the glittering, turquoise waters and laid-back lifestyle of this Italian paradise. With beautiful design, photography, full colour illustrations and joyful anecdotes throughout, Bitter Honey is a holiday, a cookbook and a window onto a covetable lifestyle in the sun - all rolled into one.

One of the most exciting cookbooks of this year. The writing, photo, design and most importantly the recipes are all outstanding. One that you will read cover to cover and also cook from. -- Olia Hercules
Like a blast of Sardinian sunshine on a drab British lockdown evening. Full of artichokes, pasta and joy. -- Bee Wilson
