JUST SARDINIA AWARDED FEEFO GOLD TRUSTED SERVICE AWARD 2018

February 2018, Just Sardinia has won the Feefo Gold Service award, an independent seal of excellence that recognises businesses for delivering exceptional experiences, as rated by real customers.

Created by Feefo, Trusted Service is awarded only to those businesses that use Feefo to collect genuine ratings and reviews. Those that meet the high standard, based on the number of reviews they have collected, and their average rating, are awarded. A badge of honour, this accreditation remains unique, as it is based purely on the interactions with verified customers. As all reviews are verified as genuine, the accreditation is a true reflection of a business’ commitment to outstanding service.

Just Sardinia met the criteria of collecting at least 50 reviews between January 1st 2017 and December 31st 2017, with a Feefo service rating of between 4.5 and 5.0.

Huw Nurse, MD of Just Sardinia commented: “It’s a real honour to receive this award from Feefo. To be recognised for delivering exceptional experiences to our customers is a great achievement. We’ve been working hard to ensure our customers receive the best service possible, and being able to listen, understand and respond to their needs has enabled us to improve our offering in 2017. We’re looking forward to another successful year ahead.”

Speaking on this year’s award, Andrew Mabbutt, CEO at Feefo, commented: ‘The Trusted Service award has always been about recognising those companies that go the extra mile. Once again, we have seen many incredible businesses using Feefo to its full potential, to provide truly memorable experiences for their customers – and rightly being awarded with our most prestigious accreditation. I look forward to the continual success of the businesses that work in partnership with Feefo throughout 2018.’

Hairy Bikers in Sardinia!

Hairy Bikers' Mediterranean Adventure Series 1, Episode 2 IN SARDINIA!
Watch on BBC2 iPlayer:
www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09m8hw5

The bikers begin their Sardinian adventure in the small town of Cagliari, where everyone is in high spirits for the feast of St Efisio. The locals are dressed in traditional garb to parade through the town on decorated bullock carts. The bikers join in the fun by cooking a local speciality - almond and orange cakes. Leaving the festivities behind, they head west to meet the tuna fishermen of Carloforte. Here, tuna is known as the 'pig of the sea' and nose-to-tail eating is the norm. After seeing the locals' unique form of fishing, the bikers meet a chef who serves up platters of tuna treated the Carloforte way.

Situated at the heart of the Mediterranean sea, Sardinia has been invaded from all directions during its history. While the people of Carloforte are descended from the Ligurians of northern Italy, the charming town of Alghero is positively Catalan in its culinary heritage. Here, they serve up octopus, lobster and dessert all Catalan-style. Over the centuries, incomers have settled around the coast, but the mountainous interior was never truly conquered or colonised and that is the bikers' next stop on their quest to find the 'real' Sardinia.

A mountain-top campsite proves the perfect place to meet the locals and the bikers soon find themselves immersed in the warm embrace of a group of shepherds. They see how Sa Ventre is made - it is a kind of sheep's black pudding - a classic case of using everything that nature has to offer.

Featured recipes include frutti di mare with saffron fregola (seafood with fregola pasta and saffron ), torta menjar blanc  (lemon cream tart) and lamb and fennel stew with fennel salad
