Chef Giorgi Iosava, founder of Bia Salobie:
“In Salobie Bia, we make accent on Georgian vegetarian direction. Over the past period, 90% of clients are tourists from Germany, the USA, Poland and so on. This is a certain trend, a half part of the world has become vegetarian and in this respect Georgian cuisine has much potential. For example, Khachapuri has much potential, as well as the whole Georgian vegetarian cuisine – beans, Pkhalueoba (edible greens) and so on. We have a rich country in this respect. We have not fully explored all potential of our treasure and we should gradually disclose this treasure from old books.
