The tradition of conversation with the bowl in the hands, begun when people used to pray before the meal. The toast represents a small prayer for Georgians. The true Georgian toast is distinguished by its sincerity. The head of the Georgian table is Tamada. With its form, content and purpose, this concept has no analogy in the world.
Tamada is responsible for the toast and consistent protection of the rule of feast. He is in charge of representing the family, the ancestors and generally, the aesthetic values of the hosts, the memory of the departed, the respect of the attendants.
Tamada should be the intellectual and authoritative person.
