This is the local pastry of the beautiful town of Bonifacio on Corsica, called, Pain des morts. Which, when I read about it in the guide book, naturally we had to find some for breakfast. It’s nice, dense, with raisins and nuts.
Apparently traditionally it was made only on the Feast of the Dead, 2 November.
But now it’s just a Bonifacio thing.
Here, by the way, is a shot of Bonifacio as we sailed past.
