Produced in Cabras since the 14th century the precious bottarga, eggs from mullet fish, have become known as the ‘gold or caviar of Sardinia’. They are harvested by strict artisanal methods, only in September in the protected Arenas Bay in the Gulf of Oristano. Their rarity adds to their value. Cabras is in the Sinis peninsula a treasure trove of Phoenician archaeology by turquoise waters and quartz beaches. The capital, Oristano is famed for its equestrian carnival and glorious lakes. Your most indelible memory will be a simple dish of pasta with bottarga and a little lemon zest.
