The island of Corsica, located in the Mediterranean Sea, is often referred to as "The Island of Beauty" and for good reason! Corsica reveals a resilient and dramatically beautiful island rich in tradition. Perhaps you know Corsica as the birthplace of Napoleon, and though it is a part of France, this island has long stood apart from the mainland with its own blend of traditions steeped in both French and Italian influences. It is home to some of the best charcuterie in the world as well as olive oil, honey, wine and cheese; Corsica has many culinary gems!

Join our resident French cuisine instructor Zoé McLaughlin and discover the food that sets this island of beauty apart from the rest of France!
