Food Across Cultures: taste Georgia
Trip of Food Across Cultures continues with Georgian cuisine this Wednesday, March 20th, at 19:00 in the student lounge (D building ground floor).
Georgian cuisine was influenced and developed back in the Han dynasty (207 BCE–220 CE), when silk was carried through Central Asian regions to Europe and the road of the silk transfer was called the Silk Road. Many of the territories food-wise were inspired by other regions and the travelers implemented some of the cuisine details of the Silk Road in the nearby regions.
Traditional Georgian feast is called Supra or Keipi, historically Supra was held in Spring and all of the neighbors came. Women of the neighborhood made sure there is enough food and wine.
Culturally, some dishes are eaten in a certain way for the best experience and flavor. For example khinkali are held by the little “tail” of the dumpling, then it must be bitten into to be able to drink the broth of the meat inside and then eat the rest of it, except the “tail”. Ventspils University of Applied Sciences master students Tatia and Ketevani will show us the proper way of eating khinkali and other amazing Georgian dishes!
You are welcome to join our friendly evening! See you!
