According to Georgian legend, when God was distributing land among the peoples of the world, the Georgians were so busy eating and drinking that they lost their place in the queue and there was no land left. However when they invited God to join the party, he enjoyed himself so immensely that he gave them all the prime plots of land that he had been saving for himself.
On this gastronomic tailor-made tour you will not only discover the incredible landscapes and historic landmarks of Georgia, you’ll also try an abundance of delicious local foods in restaurants, private homes and on alfresco picnics. Regent recommends the pkhali (young spinach leaves, pounded together with spices), satsivi (a delicious rich walnut sauce flavoured with herbs and garlic) and khachapuri (indulgent layers of flat bread alternated with melted cheese).
There will also be plenty of opportunities to sample local wines – with between 500 and 1,000 grape varieties in Georgia, almost every village produces its own delicious wine. Gaumarjos!
