In Sardinian, durke means ‘sweet’, and they don’t come sweeter than this delightful old-fashioned store. Its dolci (sweets) are all made according to age-old recipes, often with nothing more than sugar, egg whites and almonds. Indulge in fruit-and-nut papassinos, moist amaretti di sardegna biscuits and pardulas (delicate ricotta cheesecakes flavoured with saffron).
