It is clear, that if you want to taste great Georgian cuisine
, the best will be to visit the capital of Georgia, Tbilisi. But, if you’re not planning a trip there, don’t worry. Within a short walk from Old Town Square, there is a Georgian Restaurant, where a Tbilisi-born chef will prepare incredible food for you right from his heart.
Our chef, Lasha Gabeskeliani, has true Georgian blood. He was born in Tbilisi 29 years ago. As a child, he often wandered into the kitchen where his father, a well-known chef, was cooking. "I've been watching my dad since I was a kid. I was fascinated by how he cooked and I liked it," Lasha reveals when he first fell in love with cooking. As time went by, the kitchen and the preparation of food attracted him more and more. One day, he couldn’t help it, and he had to give space to his ideas, which started to materialize in the kitchen. Lasha recalls his first culinary experience: "I went to the seventh grade, when I first cooked Lobio and homemade bread. No one helped me."
He invited his friends over to taste his dish. "They told me that I made it so tasty that even their mum didn’t cook it that well," he adds with a smile. It was then that the idea to become a chef arose.”
