Tasting Georgia

Get a taste of the Caucasus with a special 3-hour aperitive where we’ll teach you how to prepare simple and delicious vegetarian dishes, followed by a tasting of wines from the cradle of viticulture. 
In recent years, more and more people have become aware of the rich culinary tradition of this mountainous region of Eastern Europe, for centuries a gateway between east and west. Georgian native Lile will tell you about her home country, famed for its unique spices, healthy but tasty vegetable based pastes and other exotic dishes.

MENU
You will learn how to make:
- Spinach Pkhali, a spread of walnuts, spinach and herbs
- Beetroot Pkhali, a spread of beetroot, walnuts and herbs
- Badridzhani Nigvsit, fried aubergines with walnut sauce
We’ll also prepare the secret weapon of Georgian cuisine, the spice mix known as Khmeli-Suneli, getting your own mix to take home.
Last but not least, we’ll try Georgia’s mouthwatering cheesebreads, Khachapuri.
