David Gorji (b. April 20, 1974), an American author, translator, traveler, and researcher, of Caucasus Georgian descent, describes his quest to seek his ancestral roots, a quest in which he discovers a gorgeous land called Georgia and its most hospitable inhabitants, the Georgians. Gorji’s excitement at learning about his newly reclaimed homeland is evident in his fireside-like narrative about this marvelous country, its rich history and culture, amazing heritage and millennia-old winemaking and feasting traditions. In this sequel to his inaugural book, “Georgian Gorgeous… or Gorgeous Georgians?” he attempts to retrace the possible route of the Argonauts and to describe the once glorious and powerful Kingdom of Colchis in Western Georgia. For dessert, the author, in the final chapter of the book, offers a detailed review of famed Georgian cuisine, the traditional supra festive table, along with relevant customs and traditions, ending with a description of some of this country’s best wines.
