About Georgian Recipes

Georgian Recipes is a project of Georgia About, a registered not-for-profit organization in Georgia that undertakes research and promotion of Georgian culture, cuisine, tourism and heritage within Georgia and internationally.

Georgian Recipes aims to promote and preserve Georgia’s rich culinary heritage. All of the dishes shown on the website have been prepared by a Georgian cook using traditional recipes and are presented in a step-by-step way so that you too can enjoy authentic Georgian cuisine.

Georgian cuisine refers to the cooking styles and dishes with origins in the country of Georgia. Each historical province of Georgia has its own distinct culinary tradition, for example Megrelian, Kakhetian, Ajarian and Imeretian cuisines. We post recipes for well known national and regional dishes as well as less known traditional dishes and popular everyday family meals.

Food is an integral part of Georgia’s famed hospitality, which is particularly demonstrated  in feasts called supra, where a huge assortment of dishes is prepared and always accompanied by large amounts of wine, and often lasting for hours.

We hope that you enjoy our supra!

Georgia is a beautiful as well as a culturally rich country that is situated at the crossroads where Europe meets Asia. Our award winning website, Georgia About, has introduced thousands of people throughout the world to the sights, history, traditions and culture of Georgia.

    Hi there,

    We’re living in Georgia right now and would like to try out some of these recipes while the right ingredients are available. However, I can’t figure out some of the spice names in Georgian. We want to start with the lobio recipe and I don’t know how to ask for fenugreek. Coriander is ქინძი, right? If you know of a page that lists most of the necessary spices in both English and Kartuli, or could make one… 🙂 that would be very helpful.

    Was recently introduced to Georgian cuisine and I am in love! Please recommend a brand of Ajika that I can buy online. Many recipes seem to require it. Thank you!
