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 the Cantu di Mare residence near Olmeto-Plage.
