National Cuisine of Georgia

Georgian cuisine has absorbed culinary traditions of Transcaucasia, Asia and the Black Sea coast.

The western part of Georgia was particularly influenced by Turkish cuisine. Iranian influence is prevalent in the west. In western Georgia, corn flour flat cakes similar to cornbread called mchadi are common. In contrast, the eastern Georgian people prefer white bread baked in huge clay furnaces called tone. The oblong uncut loaf is called tonis puri. Easterners use corn flour to cook thick mash called gomi – which is eaten, instead of bread, with meat and vegetable dishes. Eastern Georgians cook mutton and use many animal fats along with beef. In Western Georgia they favor poultry – chicken, turkey and other fowl. Rennet cheeses such as sulguni and imeruli are popular in Western Georgia. Eastern Georgia features spicy and salty cheeses such askobian and tushin.
