Item description for Recipes from Corsica by Rolli Lucarotti...
Corsican specialties range from many different types of charcuterie to a light curd cheese called Bruccio that is used in many dishes or eaten fresh. The islanders have all the resources of the sea, and of wild mountains and forest at their doorstep, so fish and game are widely available. Traditional recipes have been sought out and are given here in cookable detail. There is much about pigs and goats and lamb, some wonderful soups and imaginative use of vegetables. There are also many dishes based on chestnut flour and if you need to stuff a pig's stomach, here's the place to look it up.

A must have book about Corsica Aug 9, 2004
At last a book about Corsican cooking. For those of you who have been travelling to the island with pleasure over the past years here is the book with absolutely all of the best traditional recipes. The recipes are really well explained and are quite easy to make - I've already made several and have had only praise from my family and guests. What I also really appreciate about this book are all of the anecdotes told before the recipes; they give you a sense of the place and what the author experienced whilst living there. The paperback format is really pleasing as is the typography and there are nice black and white drawings throughout the book. As I said this book is for those who already know and love the island (like me) but also for all of those who want to find out more about Corsica. It's a must have!
