Corsican charcuterie

Corsican charcuterie

Give honor where honor is due and make way for Corsican charcuterie, a pillar of Corsican cuisine. It is famous for the high quality of its pork, its traditional artisanal methods of production and the meticulous care given to the smoking process, which uses oak logs and vines to flavor the pork.

Authentic U Prisuttu dry ham is made with Porcu nustrale, the famed Corsican pig, raised in the mountains and whose main diet is acorns and chestnuts. A Coppa pork loin, U Lonzu flavored dried pork tenderloin and figatelli, a U-shaped sausage made from pork and pork liver are the other delicacies of Corsican charcuterie. After tasting these delicacies, it will be impossible not to bring some back home from your stay in your rental villa in Corsica at Domaine Arcobiato near Olmeto-Plage.
Corsican Cheeses and Other Local Specialties

Corsican Cheeses and Other Local Specialties

As a mountainous region with a strong tradition of goat farming, Corsica produces numerous cheeses made from goat or sheep milk, typically from Corsican breeds, but not exclusively.
The most famous among them is undoubtedly brocciu, which is consumed fresh, sometimes aged. Corsican tomme and Casgiu merzu, literally 'rotten cheese', are other Corsican cheeses that are a must-try.
Chestnuts are also part of the culinary heritage of the Island of Beauty and wonderfully accompany meats. Corsican chestnut flour is an ingredient in several culinary compositions. Examples include fritters, bread, pancakes, and the traditional dish called pulenta.

It’s impossible to discuss Corsican cuisine without highlighting that it is exclusively made with local olive oil, both in salads and for cooking.
Corsican honey is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and carries the label 'Miel de Corse – Mele di Corsica'. It proudly bears the taste of the Corsican maquis and you will find it in different flavors, such as cistus, thyme, asphodel, strawberry tree, heather…
These are specialties that are easy to find and, most importantly, to bring back in your luggage when returning from your house rental in Corsica!

Corsican Soup
All vegetables depending on the season, with the base being potatoes, leeks, carrots, and fresh or dried shelled red beans, and celery.
Peel the vegetables and cut them into dices and pieces.
In a preferably cast-iron casserole, pour olive oil and sauté all the vegetables without browning them, add tomato paste or fresh tomatoes in season. Ensure that the vegetables remain firm.
Pour in water, coarse salt, and freshly ground pepper. Add a raw ham bone or, if unavailable, a piece of panzetta. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat. Cooking is very important: the soup must simmer for at least 4 hours, but the vegetables should not turn into a puree.
When serving, pour a drizzle of raw olive oil over the boiling soup.
