Khachapuri Is the Georgian Cheese Boat of Your Dreams | Food Skills

  • Published on Feb 27, 2017
  • In this edition of "Food Skills," we head to Old Tbilisi Garden in Greenwich Village, one of the few restaurants in New York City to serve traditional Georgian cuisine. The highlight of the menu is a bread-shaped boat of cheese and egg yolk called khachapuri adjaruli. To make the classic dish, a mound of slightly sour sulguni is stuffed inside butter-brushed dough, before being left to brown and bubble in the oven.

    I do not recall khachapuri being open-top. I guess that's just some flair or local variation the restaurant is doing.

    All the foods I've seen on Food Skills segment look good af, but "Food Skills" is a bad name. It sort of implies that we're gonna learn how to make some bad ass food, then all we get is a brief glimpse of it. Still enjoy watching, especially since it's so fast.

    Khachapuri is made without the egg and doesn't have any openings but still has the cheese in the middle. But the one that he is making in the video is called Ajarski. MMMMMM So good. Armenians love to make and especially love to eat it.

      There is a State in America called 'Georgia' but there is a small country near Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan called 'Georgia' too that's where the khatchapuri and other awesome things are coming from. In our country Georgia, Armenians are known for appropriating things that ain't theirs. That causes mistrust and hate to them.
