Georgian cuisine

Georgia is not a big country. Noone can say the same about the diversity of local food and food traditions. It is exciting how they managed to get so many unique flavours by combining simple ordinary ingredients.

Georgian cuisine is notorious for meat dishes. It is also rich in herbs, vegetables and beans. Local wine is usually served along with the main courses. Drinking self-made vodka by the name of "chacha" is also very common among those who prefer stronger drinks.

Georgians love to feast. Whether it is a wedding, a birthday celebration or a mere gathering of old friends, there is always more food that guests can eat. Accompanied by great speaches and singing, the event gains very special ambience.

One person is usually appointed to run the feast - now he is "tamada". It is a very important well respected role. Tamada sits at the head of the table being the main toast maker. Toasts are taken very seriously. Everyone at the table would give a toast putting a deep thought into it.

A lucky guest invited to such feast should understand - it is a thing not to be missed while visiting this gorgeous country.
