Award-winning food and wine writer and photographer Carla Capalbo
has travelled across Georgia collecting recipes and gathering stories from
traditional food and wine producers in this stunning but little-known
country, nestled between the Caucasus Mountains and the Black Sea.
The result is a beautifully illustrated cookbook and personal travel guide.
Meet Georgia's best chefs and cooks and sample their vibrant, colourful
cuisine, including vegetables blended with walnuts and aromatic herbs,
subtly spiced stews and the irresistible cheese-filled khachapuri breads
that are served on every table.
Georgia is one of the world's oldest winemaking areas, with wines traditionally
made in clay qvevri buried in the ground. These wines are some
of today's most soughtafter by fans of natural and organic viticulture.
