........... La Cuisine Corse

The food and beverages of Corsica are without equal!

They delight from the first flaky croissant or baguette of the morning, and continue with meals showcasing local fromage, charcuterie or seafood, until the final wine or digestif wraps up another sumptuous day. Note: No need to worry... there are plenty of sportif opportunities in Corsica to burn off those extra calories!

The island's cuisine pairs authentic French, Italian and Corsican recipes with naturally rich flavored Corsican meats and cheeses, and exceptional local wines and aperitifs. Like the rest of Corsica, the ingredients are beautiful and REAL. No preservatives in the wines, cheeses or meats, instead the Corsicans use centuries old preserving techniques that care for the food without adding chemicals. It smells and tastes divine! Here's a sampling of meals offered by local shops and friends. Bon Appetite!

Some favorites include: Croissant apricot and Pépin chocolat; Corsican liqueurs, wines and cookies; Sliced cochon (pig) served with melon; Saucisson and lonzo charcuterie (pork); Wild sanglier (boar) stew; multitudes of olives and corsican tarts.
