    The history of Khachapuri

    Like many other Caucasian dishes, its history expands to centuries. Indeed, the whole kitchen of the Georgian people is shrouded in a veil of secrecy, impregnated with aromas of herbs and scents of hot spices. Well, since bread is known to be the most important ingredient of local cuisine, khachapuri is a key element of any Caucasian feast. That is why there are so may options for khachapuri recipes. The word khachapuri comes from a tandem of Georgian  "hacho'' ‘(cottage cheese) and ‘’puri'' (bread), or just bread with cheese or curd. Of course, for many years, other fillings became popular like meat, mushrooms or beans.

    The strange of Ajarksi khachapuri’s shape is believed to be given by the sailors who lived in the coastal areas of the country, and the egg, which is usually split into ready khachapuri according to traditional recipe, symbolizes the sun.
