The traditional Corsican cuisine is above all a family history, generous and tasty, transmitted as a knowledge, almost an art of living erected as heritage.
For decades, the traditional dishes of the island, from appetizers to desserts, have been concocted from local and artisanal products of remarkable quality and drawn from producers in the region.
From fritters with fresh cheese "Fritelle", great classics of Corsican cuisine, to fiadone, flan based on brocciu flavoured with lemon sometimes drizzled with brandy, island specialties abound in unforgettable flavors for your taste buds.
Served as an aperitif with a small orange wine or accompanied by a glass of rosé, herb tarts, made with shortcrust pastry, chard filling or aromatic herbs, are also excellent dishes for a light snack with traditional accents.
