CREATIVE EASTER BREAD

In Sardinia it is tradition to prepare a very special and elaborated Easter bread, the forms of which are manifold: crown, chick, girl, lapwing, fish, small baskets with holes in the shape of a fruit or flower. Even their names are different: ‘coccoi cun s’ou’, ‘coccoi to pippia’, ‘coccoi de pasca’, ‘coccoi de ou’ and of course many others.

All of these breads are completed by embedding an egg (with the shell) in the dough and sometimes concealing it. This particular bread is considered a symbol of fertility and good luck.

CORICHEDDUS – SWEETS OR JEWELS?

If I ever received one of these beauties, I am not sure I would even dare eating them – they are beautiful!

Coricheddus (small hearts) are typical Sardinian sweets commonly made of almonds, honey, orange peel and saffron! It takes a lot of time to make them as they are designed by hand, one by one, like jewels!

These sweets are typical of the Nuoro region (central Sardinia) and are often prepared for festive occasions and weddings, when they are offered to the bride and groom! The hearts are often decorated
with flowers, ears, wedding rings and lots of imagination! Other typical shapes are the bird and the pitcher.
