Corsica: The Recipes By Nicolas Stromboni [©Smith Street Books ]

 

This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican – the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around 80 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 3 million people 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 deeply respects its home-grown produce including citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood and charcuterie.

Filled with the recipes that this French region holds so dear and, until now, have never been shared, Corsica lets you in on the secrets of these dishes and tells you the stories of the characters who live and work there.

What you’ll discover is a culinary world that’s as rich as any other region in Europe.
