At Is Cheas, mushrooms are the ultimate produce. Amongst them our pride and joy is a variety of the King Oyster mushroom that only grows in Sardinia, (scientific name pleurotus eryngii) known in the local language as antunna, or cardolinu e petza. With its meaty texture and wild mushroom flavor, it is a considered a delicacy and widely celebrated in the local cuisine for its versatility.
Inside our dark poly-tunnels we only cultivate local Sardinian varieties, alternating them depending on the period of the year. The cultivation is done using traditional Sardinian mushroom farming methods dating back many years, in a natural environment that guarantees the quality of the product and the preservation of its natural flavor.
Needless to say this mushrooms occupies a very special place in our kitchen.
