Try not to eat too much katchapuri when in Georgia. You'll leave hoping you never have to see the stuff again (it's hard enough for me to post these pics).
The dish is essentially dough topped with cheese and then baked in an oven. What you see in the latter two pictures is a special variety. It's a bread boat filled with two types of cheese, baked in the oven, and then topped with a raw egg (and a healthy portion of butter) right before it's served to you. You then must mix the inside of the boat around so that the egg cooks. It is heavy, salty, but goes really well with most Georgian wines.
