Local Cuisine

Olive oil has always been the cornerstone of the Greek cuisine, especially in regions like Messinia with a long tradition in the cultivation of olive trees. Enjoyed raw or cooked in many different ways that have their roots in antiquity, high quality olive oil brings out the aromas and flavors of all ingredients in any recipe. Blending harmoniously with other local goods and products, it contributes to the creation of a region’s sustainable culinary ecosystem.

In Messinia, an ancient fertile land known for its premium agricultural products, olive oil has a leading role in daily eating habits. Along with the prized citrus fruits, vegetables, figs, raisins, local cheeses, and fine wines, it is an integral part of the region’s history, economy, and culinary heritage.
