So, it’s all nice we’re in Georgia, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE FAMOUS GEORGIAN FOOD?
Not to worry, on the second day of the international community event “Spot the Future” you will be served some traditional Georgian food in one of the most beautiful locations in Tbilisi: old town.
According to Wikipedia: The Georgian cuisine is specific to the country, but also contains some influences from other Middle Eastern and European culinary traditions, as well as those of the surrounding Western Asia. The cuisine offers a variety of dishes with various herbs and spices. Each historical province of Georgia has its own distinct culinary tradition, such as Megrelian, Kakhetian, and Imeretian cuisines. In addition to various meat dishes, Georgian cuisine also offers a variety of vegetarian meals (and even a lot of VEGAN meals! added myself, not wikipedia). The Georgian cuisine is the result of the rich interplay of culinary ideas carried along the trade routes by merchants and travelers alike.
The importance of both food and drink to Georgian culture is best observed during a feast called supra, when a huge assortment of dishes is prepared, always accompanied by large amounts of wine, and that can last for hours. In a Georgian feast, the role of the tamada (toastmaster) is an important and honored position.
So yes, we will provide you with a traditional Georgian Supra, where you will be able to taste several different delicious dishes this country has to offer. Vegetarian, vegan? You’ll be surprised! For the carnivores amongst us, they have great meat dishes as well.
