National Geographic: 5 Things to Know Before Your First Georgian Feast

National Geographic has devoted yet another article to Georgia’s tourism potential within the framework of the marketing campaign of the National Tourism Administration.

The article “5 Things to know before your first Georgian feast” by Tara Isabella Burton tells about traditions of the Georgian table “Supra,” the inseparable part of the local traditions,  national dishes and a Toastmaster “Tamada”.

“In my time in Georgia, I’ve been invited to dozens of supras — not only by friends or neighbors but at times by complete strangers. I’ve been walking in the Georgian mountain province of Khevsureti during the festival of Shatiloba (an annual summer festival of folk music and dancing, horse racing, and Georgian wrestling), only to have a group of teenage girls pull me into a local dance and ply me with wine, before inviting me to join their meal. I’ve stepped out onto my terrace to do laundry only to have the woman who lives next door insist I join her in celebrating her son’s birthday next door. But in order to survive a supra without too much of a hangover, it’s important to know a few things in advance,” Burton writes.

Along with introducing the culture and traditions of Georgian supra, the author guides the readers to the famous local wine and top dishes, including Khinkali, Khachapuri, etc. 

"There will be more food than you can possibly eat," she notes, based on her own experience.  

The marketing campaign of the National Tourism Administration on National Geographic will continue till the end of December. Five articles will be published about Georgia. The campaign comprises all member states of the European Union and the U.S.
