The origin story of the modern Israeli Georgian kitchen Deda has roots in a small village nestled in the Caucasus Mountains of Eastern Europe. The main heroine of the story is a woman named Nelly, who grew up watching her mother create delicious and warm stews, pastries, and meats that to her were the epitome of home. Years later Nelly prepared these same recipes in her own kitchen in Israel for her son Gore. He saw how much joy his mother received from feeding anyone and everyone who would walk through her door.. In 2008 Gore decided to pay homage to his mother and expanded her love of cooking by opening the original Deda, in Central Israel.
