Welcome to De Mână… We aim to source and showcase the finest food & drink directly from the small producers of Transylvania, a corner of untouched Europe, and share it with you. ‘De Mână’ which means ‘By Hand’ is our collection of food treasures with big food stories. Made by the hands of the people that live an everyday life in harmony with this ancient land.
We pride ourselves on sharing with you products that are unique & traditionally Transylvanian or Romanian, that are made only from fresh, local, natural ingredients. Products that have absolutely no contact with the modern intervention of chemicals and additives. We work very closely with our producers to ensure that we bring to you products of only the highest quality and consistency.
Transylvania itself, translating in Latin to ‘The Land Beyond The Forest’ is one of the historical regions of central Romania. One where you may just find bears dancing with wolves and wild boar and where people are shaped by their environment rather than the other way around. This diverse landscape of riches is plentiful with virgin forests, wildflower meadows, medieval towns, mountain arcs & rivers. An abundance of unique beauty that has one of the richest flora & fauna in Europe.
De Mână is a celebration of all things Transylvanian. A celebration of the heritage & culture, the land, the people who work the land and the people that create the remarkable food produce that we are now able to share with you. We hope that you love it as much as we do and enjoy our Transylvanian food stories.
