The New York Times last weekend featured a big interview with Dan Buettner, author of the new book The Blue Zones Solution. Buettner has studied longevity around the world and identified five "blue zones" where people appear to live exceptionally long, healthy lives. One of these blue zones is Sardinia--and one of the very few (and, we think, easily one of the best) Sardinian cookbooks available is Agate Surrey's The Sardinian Cookbook, by cooking instructor and sommelier Viktorija Todorovska, who knows a thing or two about the good life. Viktorija's book also delves into Sardinian culture, history, and lifestyle. If you're interested in what comprises good and healthful living in the Sardinian blue zone, this is an excellent resource.
