Spécial Spiced Corsican Côte de Bœuf

A real Barbi ‘pièce de résistance’ this classic French dish was actually inspired by my favourite haunt – Corsica. The juicy, spicy meat topped with fragrant Herbs de Maquis is a perfect reminder of a beautiful, unspoilt Island – best with a glass of Nielluccio!
