After having been in #theotherGeorgia for less than three days, I may have already found my favorite tradition. The Supra. The Supra is like a feast on steroids. The host prepares, or orders, enough food to feed about 100 people (I don't think that is an exaggeration). The food comes out slowly, about 6 - 8 courses over a 4 or 5 hour period of time. Each course, the food gets heavier and heavier. You move from breads to veggies to stews to fish to meat to meat to meat to fruit to dessert. It is rude to not eat what is given to you, so you have to pace yourself. Even if you really like something and would want to go back for seconds, it’s in your best interest to not. Unfortunately, I found out the hard way. I ate too much on the earlier courses. By the time the last round of meat came, I thought I’d never want to see meat again. Here are some pictures of some of the great food.
