Agricultural and food biodiversity are fundamental resources for our survival and we all need to protect them. Carla Capalbo has long played her part through her food writing. She's doing it again here, in this detailed and colourful book about Georgia. With characteristic empathy and engagement, she's documented Georgia's unique gastronomic traditions and the people who have fought so hard to preserve them. --Carlo Petrini, Founder of Slow Food
A book that shows the world perhaps one of the last undiscovered great food cultures of Europe. --René Redzepi, noma
Tasting Georgia is a book for travellers, cooks, wine lovers and for anyone who appreciates glorious photography. It is itself a kind of supra - a feast of colour, crafted with patience and persistence, investment, love and skill. --Tamlyn Currin, www.jancisrobinson.com
