Temperatures are dropping… warm up with a hearty, cheesy bread bowl.
On December 13th, I’m collaborating with Court Tree Collective to give you an introduction to Georgian Cuisine.
Khachapuri is a cheese-filled bread found throughout the Republic of Georgia. Though it takes on many forms, Americans are probably most familiar with Ajaran khachapuri — a boat-shaped yeasted bread, filled with cheese and topped with a runny egg and butter (pictured above). In this class, I’ll teach you how to make the Ajaran classic, as well as Imeretian khachapuri, where the cheese is encased in yogurt-enriched dough. Finally, we’ll make lobiani: not strictly considered a type of khachapuri, the cheese filling is replaced with red kidney beans (a Georgian staple) mashed with onions and coriander. We’ll conclude class by sitting down to eat what we’ve made, along with a classic Georgian salad, homemade tarragon soda, and a taste of Georgia’s unique amber wine.
Tickets are $55, and you can reserve your spot on Court Tree’s website.
