Mandolato is a sweet nougat confection that was brought to Greece's Ioanian islands by the Venetians in the middle ages. It has been a popular treat there ever since!
This unique mandolato is produced by the renowned sweet shop of Corfu, Mavromatis. The chewy nougat is flavored with almonds and Corfiot kumquats, and sandwiched between two thin wafers. Kumquats are small, citrus fruits that have flourished in Corfu, earning them Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status. This kumquat mandolato is a truly unique confection with all of the delicious flavors of the Ionian.
