Bitter Honey: Recipes and Stories from the Island of Sardinia


To cook like a Sardinian, you have to eat like a Sardinian. Cooking here reflects life: it is a slow and relaxed affair.

In Bitter Honey, seasoned chef Letitia Clark invites us into her home on this beautiful island- a part of Italy, but a world of its own- and showcases the local ingredients through simple but stand-out recipes. You'll find everything from aperitivo bites such as Bottarge pate and Roasted pecorino with walnuts and honey, to the island's iconic pastas- Malloreddus with sausage and tomato sauce and Gregola with fennel and clams- and sensational dolce, including a boozy Tiramisu, and luscious Gelato made with olive oil and aromatic Seville orange zest.


As any Sardinian will tell you, life is for living, and food is for eating. Letitia's recipes capture time-honoured traditions and a passion for produce that, together, build a picture of Sardinia's culinary landscape. With stunning photography of the island and joyful anecdotes throughout, this is an imagined holiday, a cookbook and captivating food and travel journal all rolled into one.
