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 where 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 narration 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 focuses on Mtskheta and Tbilisi, Georgia’s ancient and modern-day, though equally old, capitals, respectively. 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.
