DUMÈ CESARI

Authentic delicatessen from Corsica

It is located in the middle of the Corsican mountains, in the village of Cozzana situated on the high Taravo, that Dumè Cesari rears his pigs and manufactures a variety of delicatessen products. 

The making of charcuterie is a family tradition for the Cesari family. At a young age, Dumè has immersed himself in the world of charcuterie ever since his parents started a farm in 1980. His techniques are imbued with ancestral knowledge, being the same as those that his grandfather and father had used before him. Dumè ‘s younger brother, Jean Joseph, helps to sell their products everyday in the markets of Ajaccio. 

The pigs reared by the Cesari family are bred in the wild. They are fed with cereal and barley flour in the summer, and wild acorns and chestnuts during the winter. These rearing methods explain the excellent quality of the charcuterie and its unique taste. The slaughter of the pigs, known as “la tumbera”, starts in November. The salting and drying processes follows after. The final refinement step is done in a natural cellar in the village and takes between 3 to 24 months, depending on the product. 

It takes time to make the best products possible.
