Mandolato is a famous traditional Greek product. It is a wonderful tasty titbit for children and adults, which combines the healthy honey with the exquisite taste of the roasting almond.
Its history starts from the early Byzantine times. Mandolato became famous due to the Emperor Justinianus who loved it very much. It is said that his first secret meetings with the future Empress Theodora were accompanied from the aphrodisiac taste of Mandolato.
The authentic receipt throughout the centuries has been collected in a parchment of 18th century and its taste has been kept unalterable until today. The best Mandolato comes from the Ionian Islands where it is produced in excess. The main and most qualitative production of Mandolato takes place in Zakynthos.
