Book Overview

In Bitter Honey, seasoned chef Letitia Clark invites us into her new home on one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea - Sardinia. Cooking here reflects life: it is a slow and relaxed affair. Meat is almost always slow roasted over an open fire, often on a rustic spit. Cheese is made and matured slowly, using age-old methods and tools. Beans and legumes, and most vegetables too are cooked long and slow, extracting all their sweetness. There is no sense of urgency about anything. The recipes in this book don't take long to make, but you can taste the ethos behind every one of them - one which invites you to slow down, to enjoy yourself, to nourish yourself with food, friends, and family.

Try your hand at Roasted eggplants with honey, mint, garlic & 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, or a Roast chicken stuffed with ricotta and chard. If you're craving something sweet, follow up with an Almond panna cotta with poached apricots, or a bowl of Mascarpone and sour cherry ice cream. Each of these recipes, and the stories behind them, will transport you to the glittering, turquoise waters and laid-back lifestyle of this Italian paradise. With beautiful design, photography, full color illustrations and joyful anecdotes throughout, Bitter Honey is a vacation, a cookbook and a window onto a covetable lifestyle in the sun - all rolled into one.

   Gorgeous book, great gift
This is a beautifully designed cook book, the interior is just as beautiful as the outside. Recipes are easy to follow and aren t too precise in true Italian style. I am gluten-free and vegetarian and found a number of things in this book that I could eat or easily modify. But you can not blame a girl for the mishap of not having been born on a Mediterranean island, and she does a great job of capturing and explaining local culture and cuisine.

   Nice, not fabulous
I was a bit put-off by the writer's ambivalence towards her former boyfriend. The recipes are also great, but not quite as nice. However, it made me want to visit Sardinia.

   Needed a better editor
Talks about Hachiya persimmons, but reveals fuyu mispellings ingredients such as flour left out of a cake recipe. Not very Sardinian recipes, rather trendy.

   cookbook collector
I have a thing for cookbooks and this is one of the most beautiful ones I own. I have been to Sardinia once, but this book took me fully back there - it is rare that a cookbook transports you to a location. So far, I only made the fried sage leaves and roasted pecorino, but they were amazing. I saw other reviewers comment on the author's use of bottarga. So, she does use it a lot, but it is a Sardinian staple. You probably won 't find it at your local grocery store, but I have actually been able to find it somewhat easily... check with your local specialty stores or order it online.

   Why so many pictures of the author, but not the food?
Why do they still make cookbooks that don 't have pictures of the dish? There are tons of pictures of this woman along the countryside, picking vegetables and smiling, but why the hell don 't they have pictures of all the dishes? Lame is a kind of spiritually beautiful.
