July 5, 2022 we took a Ferry ride across the Mediterranean from Sardinia to Corsica to visit some friends of ours.
The have a beach-side house on the east coast of Corsica, not far from Bonifacio. This is really an incredible spot.
The house is lovely and the patio looks out on the incredible view of the sea above.
Our friends prepared a traditional Corsican lunch, including wine of course.
Moroccan olives that are almost sweet.
Empanadas with caramelized onions and cheese and a Corsican herb.
Watermelon and avocado salad.
Tripe made by the local priest. very tender but smelled and tasted “fecal.” Eww.
Cannelloni with cheese and spinach.
Pecorino and fig jam.
These were the best packaged gelato I have yet had.
Overall, this was just one of those peerless afternoons. The food was nice, but it wasn’t about that per se, but really the location, weather, company, and all that.
