The last time I was in the main market in Tbilisi, the capital city of the Republic of Georgia, an elderly woman selling honey caught sight of me taking pictures and waved me over to her stall. She gestured for me to hold out my palm, and onto it she placed a glistening chunk of fresh, gooey honeycomb. At first I wasn't sure what to do—eat it whole? Sample a small taste and toss the rest? In the end, I just popped the entire thing in my mouth and licked the honey off my hand, laughing as others laughed along with me. In the next hour, as I made my way around to the other stalls, that honey was followed by samples of goat cheese, olives, pomegranate seeds, cheese-filled breads, nuts, fruits, and much more.
