December Books 11) The Georgian Feast

11) The Georgian Feast: The Vibrant Culture and Savory Food of the Republic of Georgia, by Darra Goldstein

I don't usually blog books until I've finished reading them, but this has to be an exception, as I will take several more months to absorb the full range of possibilities here. Georgian food is very yummy indeed (as those of you reading my July entries will be aware). Have been working through these recipes, and while my natural instinct of to try and cook those with the most unpronounceable names (Tklapi, Chkmeruli) in fact I've been restricted by availability of ingredientrs and my own willingness to experiment with new cooking techniques. So, basically, we've had grilled trout, cheese with mint, chicken stew and salmon stew (that last for the in-laws last night, while Anne and I went out). It all tastes yummy. No wonder this book won the Julia Child Cookbook of the Year award.
