Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe, 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 home-grown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood and charcuterie. This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican - the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food.
Renowned author, master sommelier and epicurean Nicolas Stromboni heads the largest wine cellar in Corsica, which in October 2011 was voted best wine shop in France. A passionate ambassador for Corsican produce, Corsica: The Recipes is Nicolas Stromboni s first book.
