Have you ever had Georgian food? The country, not the state. Neither have I. But I've been hearing a whole lot about it lately in the food news. It's becoming quite popular among the circuit these days. So Mr. M&P and Dessert Zombie, and I went to try some. So what's the most famous dish to have? Why the famous Georgian bread, khachapuri!
Since the bread comes piping hot to the table, the waitress will offer to mix up the filling for you creating a very luxurious type of scrambled cheesy egg mixture in the middle. We started my taking a piece of the yeasty dough from the ends and dipping it into the deliciousness in the middle. But really, the winning parts is the bread that's cradling the cheesy goodness in the middle. Think about chowder served in a bread bowl. The best part is the bread that's been soaking up the creamy chowder. Well, for this Georgian bread, the best part is soaking up melted cheese, eggs, and butter. Oh yeah, it was so good. We all could have just ordered three of these to share. But since we were relatively new to the cuisine, we decided to order a bunch of stuff to try instead.
