Summary/Abstract: A Georgian feast does not boast a complex structure. Its basic elements constitute wine, food, proposing a toast. However, one should emphasise that each region has its own tradition. The process of the preparation of dishes may vary, but all elements are combined to form the Georgian supra. The table – in its material dimension – depends exclusively on people who intend to spend some time together. It may appear unexpectedly, anywhere – in the most bizarre location. The purpose of a Georgian feast is to bring together both the revellers and the table on which food and drink is served. It is difficult to say when the tradition of the feast that is featured in Georgia today originated. According to one of the most popular theories, this tradition dates back to the 19th century.
