Tradition & Passion

Italian Cuisine – Sardinian Style

Sardinia, Italy, famous for being named one of the five global Blue Regions where people on the island are 10 times more likely to live to 100 years than those living in the United States, has made its way to Weston through a new family restaurant, Zona Blu. Sardinian-born Executive Chef, Andrea Fadda, will take you on a culinary journey through the island of Sardinia integrating modern takes on traditional Sardinian cuisine such as fregula (a pasta that resembles Israeli couscous) and malloreddus (small, handrolled pasta), paired with familiar Italian favorites. Zona Blu’s menu features wood-fired pizza, focaccia and breads made in-house daily, home-made pastas and desserts, and fresh seafood. In addition to panini, Zona Blu offers specialty luncheon meats and cheeses, sausage, olive oil and over 100 wines, all imported from Italy. Every guest at Zona Blu will be treated like family. Sit down, have a drink, enjoy both traditional and Sardinian-inspired dishes and most importantly toast to “A Kent’ Annos” – or, as commonly cheered in Sardinia, “to 100 years!”


 

Chef Andrea Fadda has trained all over the world and has created the Zona Blu menu which combines traditional and modern takes on Italian and Sardinian food.

Executive Chef Andrea Fadda Biography

Executive Chef Andrea Fadda, a native of Cagliari, Sardinia, began his 25-year career at the prestigious College of Cuisine in Porto Pino, Sardinia.  After completing his studies and many internships, Andrea developed a deep understanding of culinary techniques, a knowledge of the various products from his environment and the meaning of hard work in the kitchen. From there, he began his path along five-star hotels throughout the Italian Alps during the winter and on the famous Emerald Coast of Sardinia during the summer.  In the late 1990’s, he was recruited to work for some of the most glamorous restaurants in Paris, London and Mexico. While in Europe, he received an offer from a prominent Italian hotel chain, Club Vacanze, to launch a restaurant in a luxury lodge in the Seychelles Islands, followed by openings in the Maldives Islands, Zanzibar, Cuba, Egypt, Cape Verde Islands, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.  In 2006, he returned to Sardinia where he was given the task of leading a renowned resort with 12 restaurants to high levels.  After only three years, the hotel and its restaurants appeared in award-winning guides due to the high quality of his cuisine and products used. Love, and a desire “to live the American dream”, led him to South Florida where he is raising two children with his wife, Kiry.  Since arriving in South Florida six years ago, Andrea has developed a following and is making it his mission to bring a bit of Sardinia’s lifestyle and cuisine to South Florida.
