The Abkhazian cuisine is one reason why Abkhazians can live incredibly long lives. Abkhazians like to share their food with family, friends and neighbours. From spicy to sweet, the Abkhazian diet is filled with flavours and fragrances. Meat and vegetables make up many meals, with fresh fish from the Black Sea also found in towns and cities. Sweets and desserts are based around honey, nuts, and seeds. The table is often filled with many dishes and sides, including meat, several salads and vegetables, breads and soups. The most common meals and dishes are Ajika, Polenta a.k.a Mamalyga, and Lobio, and with these we have brought together a range of Abkhazian cuisine including starters, mains and desserts.
