Porcetto sardo (Suckling Pig) probably represents the icon of Sardinian gastronomy. Although the preparation of this delicacy appears quite simple, it is important to emphasise how much experience and patience this recipe requires.
The Porcetto sardo pig is a suckling pig, i.e. reared essentially on a diet consisting of mother's milk with little supplementation. The ideal weight ranges between 9 lb (around 20 days old) and 14 lb (around 40 days old).
