Try the finest carasau bread, which was known in Sardinia in the Bronze Age and still has not lost its popularity.
Carasau bread is known in Sardinia since the time of the mysterious nuragic civilization. It is prepared exclusively in the furnace, and such bread is stored for several months. That's why it was very popular among the shepherds, who left for a few days from home and always took with them carasau.
Bread is not thinner than a sheet of paper and tastes like pita bread. Carasau is often dipped in milk or water, then it becomes even more tasty and it is possible to wrap the filling.
Prepared carasau bread only women, and the cooking process takes a long time. Now this bread can be bought in supermarkets, markets and shops.
The younger "brother" of carasau - bread guttiau, with olive oil and salt in it.
