Experiencing food in the Mani means great traditional cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere: the Mani cuisine offers originality and luxury for the modern life – ideal for social gatherings, family dinners and olive lovers.
The Mani is a region in south Greece, in the middle finger of the Peloponnese. Here are the ideal conditions for growing olives. With the different Mani Bläuel products you can enjoy the Mani food culture at home – with extra virgin olive oil, olives and mezes (Greek appetizers).
The rocky peaks of the Taygetos mountains, the deep blue sea and the silver/green olive groves form the picturesque background for the lifestyle of the people in the Mani. Until the early 70s’, there were no roads connecting the villages of the Mani, no commercial centres, no nearby towns. Endless hours were spent walking over cobbled stones and winding lanes. Because of this isolation the residents of the area had to rely only on the food produced locally, and this developed a very essential, simple and healthy cuisine, based on the main products of the Mani soil: wheat, olive oil and vegetables.
