Traditional Georgian dishes

Food and wine take a special place in Georgian cultural and national identity. Georgian cuisine itself is something of an art-old traditional recipes granted from generation to generation throughout centuries, its harmonious combination of various freshly-made vegetable salads with dozens of different herbs and spices and all -sorted barbecues grilled over a grapevine wood fire as well as aromatic water-melon marmalades and all sorts of confection made of caramelized walnuts fried in honey make Georgia a paradise for food lovers.
