The FINANCIAL — The New Year is approaching, and Georgian housewives are already preparing for this great event. So does the ISET-Policy Institute. The special dish we have cooked for our readers is a New Year Supra Index.
Served on the Georgian Supra Map, the Index shows the cost (in GEL) of a standard supra meal for a family of 5-6 person in each one of Georgia’s region. Included in our calculations are such traditional dishes as khachapuri, mtsvadi, satsivi, trout, fried chicken, Olivier salad, pkhali, cucumber & tomato salad, and – for desert – kozinaki and fruits.
The Index takes the lowest value in Shida Kartli (GEL 123.1) and the highest in Adjara (GEL 159.7). Perhaps surprisingly, walnuts are the most important — and most expensive – ingredient of the New Year Supra. At this time of the year, the price of walnuts which varies from GEL 15.8 to GEL 27.5 per kg.
ISET-PI and the Khachapuri Index Team wish you Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
