    Bruccio (or brucciu or brocciu)

    France
    By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

    Discover Bruccio (or brucciu or brocciu)

    Even though the Corsicans incorporate it into many different recipes, brucciu, known as ?the king of Corsican cheeses?, is not really a cheese.
    It is, in fact, a fresh, creamy cottage cheese made using whey, which is then mixed with pure ewe's or goat's milk. It can be enjoyed fresh, as an out-of-season dessert (i.e.: from autumn to spring), or preserved with salt and used later as a filling or topping for all sorts of things: omelettes, ravioli, doughnuts, pies, artichokes and fish.

    Like feta, bruccio is ideal as an accompaniment to an aperitif. A few prunes, some bacon and some bruccio make for some tasty brochettes!
