Overview


"Every Georgian dish is a poem."--Alexander Pushkin

"If you've got Georgia on your mind, then The Georgian Feast is required reading. This superbly written book is part ethnography, part geography, and part cookbook.

These cultural influences, along with a healthy variety of food-producing environments, have led to a rich native cuisine."--Anthony Dias Blue
