6-Course Authentic Georgian Dinner Event
If you’ve never had Georgian food—and we’ll wager you never have—you’re in for a treat. The former Soviet republic of Georgia boasts unique culinary traditions but also shows influences from Eastern Europe, Greece, Turkey, and the Middle East. Supra, which is the name for a traditional Georgian feast, is helmed by Executive Chef Malkhaz Maisashvili, who cooked at some of Georgia’s most acclaimed eateries as well as the Embassy of Georgia in D.C. Here, he artfully spins out toothsome Georgian dishes, like the cheesy flatbreads known as khachapuri and soup dumplings called khinkali, drawing on ingredients like walnuts, pomegranates, amber wine, and much more. Supra earned a coveted 2019 Bib Gourmand designation from Michelin, one of 39 D.C. restaurants so named, and ViaMichelin lauded its “deeply satisfying cuisine.” We will be taking over the restaurant for this event, as Chef Maisashvili takes your questions and offers a crash course in his country’s exceptional cuisine.
