A 19th Century recipe book found at a flea market has formed the bases of a whole concept at traditional Georgian restaurant in Barbarestan. Modern techniques combine with some of the 70 recipes in Barbare Jorjadze’s book, first published in 1874. A Georgian feast served up for dinner, but the recipe comes with a caveat. Dining at Tbilisi’s Barbarestan restaurant involves being sent back in time. The menu here is based entirely on a 19th Century cook book found at a flea market giving the owners quite the challenge. They’d always wanted their restaurant to use traditional Georgian recipes and were ready to go to libraries and travel to villages to find old recipes worthy of inclusion.
