Enjoy a private and authentic cooking class and local market tour with your hosts Zviadi and Lali. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Your hosts for this experience are a mother-son duo - Lali (the mother), a home chef and Zviadi (the son) who enjoys entertaining guests and acts as a translator. Lali has been cooking for her family every since she was a young child. Lali has always loved cooking and has decided to now teach others how to create traditional Georgian dishes. Lali and Zviadi run a small guest house in Tbilisi, and have been sharing their passion for traditional Georgian food for many years now. Zviadi and Lali aim to share their knowledge of Georgian history and culture through its traditional foods with guests. A few signature dishes that you might enjoy with Zviadi and Lali at their dining table are khinkali (meat-filled dumplings), khachapuri (cheese-filled bread), beetroot salad, and eggplant with walnuts.
