The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

This autonomous region consists of the provinces of Sassari, Nuoro and Cagliari. The fertile Campidano plain produces cereals, grapes for wine, and olives, and sheep and goats are raised there. Incorporated into Italy in 1861.
