Georgia, for traditional cheese-stuffed khachapuri

Ever heard of khachapuri? This hearty, boat-shaped bread is Georgia’s national dish, and even has its own annual day of celebration on 27 February – such is its importance to the country’s cultural heritage. Its texture varies by region, ranging from a pizza-like consistency to something closer to naan. Filled to the brim with creamy, gooey imeruli or sulguni cheese, topped with an egg and served warm from the oven, it’s comfort food at its finest. Expect to eat plenty of it on this nine-day trip.

On this 10-day journey across southern Italy, you’ll stop by an artisan bakery in Altamura to discover how it’s made and learn all about its place in the town’s heritage.
