Georgian cuisine and polyphony were given the category of national importance
– The Ministry of Education, Science, Culture, and Sport of Georgia has recently published information about this.
According to the ministry, this will make Georgian culture and traditions known all around the world and pass it to future generations.
Georgian cuisine is the traditional cuisine of Georgia. Georgian cuisine has similarities with Persian and Caucasus cuisine. Every region of Georgia has its own distinct style of food preparation. Eating and
drinking are important parts of Georgian culture.
Georgia was one of the countries on the Silk Road, which resulted in travelers influencing Georgian cuisine. The Georgian love of family and friends is one of the reasons why the feast supra (tablecloth) is so important in Georgia. Supra is offered spontaneously to relatives, friends or guests. Every supra has its tamada (toastmaster), who gives the toast and entertains the guests.
As for polyphony Georgia has rich and still vibrant traditional music, which is primarily known as arguably the earliest polyphonic tradition of the Christian world. Situated on the border of Europe and Asia, Georgia is also the home of a variety of urban singing styles with a mixture of native polyphony, Middle Eastern monophony, and late European harmonic languages. Georgian performers are well represented in the world’s leading opera troupes and concert stages.
