Run by: Intrepid

Reference number: KFZG

From: £1380.00

Discover the punchy, herbaceous flavours of Armenia and Georgia on this food adventure. Sitting on the cusp of the Middle East and Eastern Europe, these two countries bring a knowledge, pride and tradition to their cuisine that stretches back centuries. Begin the journey in Yerevan, contrasting traditional Armenian barbecue, grilled trout and tolma with the many spicy aromas of the local market – and of course a drop or two of fine Armenian brandy. Continue the adventure in Georgia, where the charming facades of Tbilisi and the snow-dusted peaks of the Caucasus are the backdrop for culinary adventures, both hands-on and leisurely. Enjoy Adjarian-style khachapuri (cheese pie), hearty chaqafuli (beef or lamb in plumb sauce), mtsvadi (meat skewers in marinated in spices and pomegranate), churchkhela (nutty Georgian candy), khinkali (Georgian dumplings) – all washed down with a delicious array of Georgia’s famous local wines. Highlights/r/n
  • Prepare your own tolma (vine-wrapped rice and mince), feast on succulent khorovats (Armenian pork barbecue) and visit a distillery to taste legendary Armenian brandy at the source.
  • Stay overnight in a local guesthouse in Gudauri, sitting down to a traditional meal with the family who run it.
  • Familiarise yourself with the local life in Telavi and make 'mtsvadi' (grilled pork skewers) then indulge in 'churchkhela', a delicious Georgian sweet!
  • Discover the World Heritage-listed church and cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia’s spiritual heart since Christianity was established in 301.
  • Finish your food adventure in Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital, awash with culture, colour and beautiful architecture. A bonus at the end of your city tour is a 'chaqafuli' (beef or lamb in a fresh plum sauce) feast with a local family.
