When you arrive at chef Eugenio’s farmhouse, located just 5 miles (8 km) outside of Alghero, he and his wife will welcome you with typical Italian hospitality. Originally from the south of the island, they enjoy hosting visitors from all over the world to share authentic family recipes.
Roll up your sleeves, tie on an apron, and join Eugenio in his kitchen to whip up a 4-course menu featuring authentic Sardinian dishes like tomato bruschetta, gnocchi with lamb sauce, and scallops with lemon and rosemary. Use fresh produce, fish, and meats from the local market along with high-quality Puglian olive oil for a true taste of island cooking. If you prefer, you can also simply relax among the convivial atmosphere and watch instead of joining in the cooking.
When the work is done, sit down along your fellow travelers and Eugenio’s family to enjoy an appetizer, first and second courses, and a dessert. Enhance the cuisine’s flavors with a selection of Sardinian red wine, and sip distinctive local aperitifs like homemade lemoncello and mirto, a liqueur made from myrtle berries. See Itinerary for a sample menu.
It’s a fantastic way to immerse yourself in local culture and savor a meal you won’t get in any restaurant.
