Zilia biscuits owe their success to the cuggiulelle recipe originating from Balagne. Cucciole from Calenzana or Cuggiulelle from Zilia, these small, dry, and light biscuits are enjoyed throughout Corsica and beyond, ideally accompanying a coffee or as a small snack.

The cuggiulelle of Zilia

Zilia Biscuit Factory - Biscuit Factory

These small Corsican biscuits come from Calenzana and Zilia in Balagne. The name varies slightly depending on the region, Cucciole in Calenzana, or Cuggiulelle in Zilia, with wine and spirits from the region.

Upon his return to Corsica in 1993 after serving in the army, Jean-Noël Santelli turned to the profession of baker and built his own bakery and wood-fired oven, beginning to market his products in the heart of the village of Zilia.

Working together, Sandrine and Jean Noel Santelli were inspired by this ancestral recipe and after several months of tasting and trials, the Cucciole became the Cuggiulelle of Zilia.

Biscuiterie Opening Hours

The Zilia Biscuiterie is open every morning from Monday to Friday, 9 am to 1 pm from April to October, and 4 pm to 6 pm starting in June.
