My poor non French people
If there is a place in France where people are crazy proud and the landscapes are crazy beautiful, it’s in crazy Cosica. One of the most beautiful place on earth and the birthplace of one of the craziest Frenchman ever, a short, brown-haired and short tempered guy called Napoleon Bonaparte.
So here is a crazy easy (and incredibly delicious) recipe in honor of this French and perfect island!
This vegetarian dish is inspired by Corsican cuisine, where zucchini are often married with fresh goat or sheep cheese and mint.
Here is the video recipe

First, for the French readers, L’Enquête Corse, by René Petillon ( so funny, so sad it has not benn translated in English)
And then a classic, Asterix in Corsica, which you may find in lots of translations
