My name is Mariuccia Spanedda and I am an entrepreneur, restaurateur and coach. I’ve been in restaurant business since 1980 and I’ve attended the best cooking schools at the local and international levels.
I love Sardinia and its traditions, together with its wealth of genuine natural and gastronomic resources, treasures that should be appreciated and enjoyed worldwide.
Wishing to pay homage to my home island with a unique delicious product, I decided to create a dessert with myrtle, one of its most famous ingredients.
The result is a real triumph of flavors and a fragrances and I really hope it will become something memorable for Sardinia.
