About This Book

A sumptuous book exploring the incredible food of France’s sunny island of Corsica.

This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican—the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around eighty incredible Corsican recipes designed to be prepared in the home kitchen, you’ll be transported to the island in no time.

Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe (although it attracts an estimated three million from France annually), Corsica is a Mediterranean island steeped in a rich food culture. With incredible geography—from the mountains to the plains and the stunning coastline—Corsica has long been a well-loved idyll for those in the know. It is also home to a unique cuisine—blending the best of French and Italian food—that respects its homegrown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood, and charcuterie.

But Corsica is more than a collection of recipes, as the book also brings together portraits of those who live and work there, and those instrumental in maintaining Corsica’s rich food culture.
