Global Table Adventure: Georgia

Sasha Martin has just completed a week of cooking some of my favorite dishes from Georgia adapted from The Silk Road Gourmet Volume One. For a look at her meal review, beautiful photos of the preparation and recipies check out her Global Table Adventure Website. Its a great project: 195 countries, 195 meals, 195 weeks. The site is informative, interesting and full of personal insight and great food!

  1. Deana, the book is great. She has so many other wonderful recipes that I wanted to try – especially the ones with pomegranate.

    Laura, thanks for the interview and correspondence. I could never complete this adventure without help from experts like yourself.


  2. Nice one.

    I find Georgian food to have some very interesting aspects that set it apart. The prolific use of walnuts is one; also the combination of “Eastern” spices (coriander, fenugreek) with Western flavours.

    I’ve come across a few recipes for the spice mix khmeli-suneli. Some use dried fenugreek leaves rather than fenugreek seeds; I tend to prefer the leaves myself.

    • Thanks ES:

      There are LOTS of recipes for K-S. As I note in the book it varies by region and household etc.

      But it is a great flavoring – even without the Garo.


    • Hi Sasha:

      The leaves are available on the Amazon store on my website – page 4 under “Herbs and Spices”.

      If you like the bricks and mortar shopping experience – I do, I just rarely have the time – see if there are Persian Markets in your area. Here is one suggestion I found: (Not sure how close to you it is.)
