What better way to get to know a place other than through its traditional products and flavors? In Kefalonia, just like in every other area of Greece, there is a variety of local products that are known for their quality, taste and uniqueness.
Mandola is a traditional sweet treat that can only be found in the Ionian Islands and is one of the most well-known traditional products of Kefalonia. This sweet delicacy is made of almonds and sugar, while its vibrant deep red color comes from a kind of seaweed that the locals use traditionally in food coloring. The name of this treat comes from the Italian word for almond, ‘Mandorla’, which was borrowed and integrated into greek, back when the isle was under the Venetian occupation.
