Lobiani (Georgian Bean-Stuffed Bread)Matt Taylor-Gross

This bean-filled Georgian flatbread is traditionally eaten at Barbaroba, the feast of St. Barbara. It is often a bit smokey from the addition of a bit of smoked pork. Bacon fat gives a similar effect in half the time, but feel free to swap it out for butter or olive oil and a few drops of liquid smoke for a vegetarian version.
