Taste of Persia Food Tours – Georgia

Taste of Persia Food Tours – Georgia

I’m working with a good friend in Georgia named Tamar Babuadze on a food-focussed tour of Georgia, an ancient one-time kingdom in the Caucasus. The capital Tbilisi is linked to Europe and Istanbul by regular flights. The food traditions are so strong, and the wine traditions too, that there will be lots to explore, and much feasting.

We’ll start and finish in beautiful Tbilisi, but we’re still figuring out the itinerary. We’re hoping to take people to Svaneti, in the high Caucasus, which will involve a short flight in a small plane, each way. We’ll also visit wine-makers and cheese-makers in eastern Georgia, as well as markets and bakeries. We’ll do a little cooking, probably in or near Tbilisi.

Our tentative dates are in early to mid-October 2017, from Saturday October 8 to Sunday October 16th. We’ll be a small group, no more than ten people.

In the meantime, if you are interested in the idea, please contact my partner in immersethrough, Deb Olson. Her phone number is 307 745-7191 and her email is deb@laramietravel.com. We hope to have the details on cost, etc. posted by mid-April. She’ll keep a list of interested people, so that when the details of the trip are settled she can check back with you.
