It’s just the name of the place I reviewed in this post. Even though I love visiting the city as much as I can, I hardly ever go every week unless I have to. This week I had to attend the book signing by a Georgian author and political scientist, […]
This dish is inspired by pasta with the ground beef ragu, but since my customer is on paleo diet and can’t eat pasta, I substituted it with cauliflower. It’s a perfect fall dish, healthy and delicious and easy to make, of course.
Corn and red pepper salad is the perfect summer/fall dish. It’s crunchy, colorful and very refreshing. Now, when the farmers markets have tons of red peppers, fresh corn, radishes, red onion and lots of herbs, it’s a must have salad at least once a week.

I created this dish for one of my customers who is allergic to onions and garlic and struggles with cutting the food. So, I cut everything myself, so that she can eat easily. She likes flavors from the herbs but can’t eat the herbs in the food, so I pureed […]

Chicken in walnut sauce is a very traditional thing in Georgian cuisine. Just because I was at the farm this morning and got tons of ripe cherry tomatoes, I decided to incorporate them in the dish. First I cooked the cherry tomatoes because I was going to save them for […]
I usually use yeast dough for perashki, which is good but time consuming, you need to wait for at least an hour for the dough to proof. Yesterday, I found this easy ricotta and baking powder based recipe and I tried. It was very good, light and fluffy. I can […]
Stuffed bell peppers are perfect summer/fall dish. In Georgia we stuff them with rice and roasted eggplant, tomatoes, carrots and onions. It’s very light and flavorful. You don’t even need to heat them second day, chilled is very good. This time, I stuffed them with ground pork/beef mix, rice, tomatoes […]
