Georgia’s national paralympic team will make their debut at Winter Paralympic Games in South Korea later this week, with two athletes from the country set to compete in PyeongChang. Para skiers Nino Sabashvili and Temur Dadiani, the first athletes to represent the country at the event, departed for the tournament on Monday. The historic significance of their participation in the Winter Paralympic Games for Georgia was stressed at their meeting with Mikheil Giorgadze, the Minister of Culture and Sport of Georgia, before the departure. The two competitors will look to test their skills in para Nordic skiing, a discipline featured within cross-country skiing at the tournament. The para Nordic skiing events will be hosted at the Alpensia Biathlon Centre and involve 100 male and 70 female contestants. Their progress will be followed by supporters of the venue that has a capacity for around 7,500 spectators. Other sports included in the Games include alpine skiing, biathlon, para ice hockey, snowboard and wheelchair curling. The PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games will feature 670 athletes from 25 countries, an increase from 539 competitors in Sochi in 2014. Georgia has only participated at Summer Paralympic Games, with judoka Zviad Gogotchuri claiming the country’s solitary medal at the Rio 2016 event.

Михаил: Gocha, we are grateful for the excellent evening and for everything that we saw and learned on this journey thanks to you! THANKS from Mikhail, Lyuba, Natasha and Sergey! This toast is for you!

Олеся: To go on a tour of Georgia with the My Sweet Georgia team is the same as staying with good close friends. Warm, sympathetic, willing to show all the beauty and characteristics of their beloved country. We were told the most interesting facts and stories, deliciously fed with national dishes and cared for our comfort in every possible way. For days we stayed in an atmosphere of sincere friendliness, fun and Georgian hospitality. And even long journeys passed unnoticed - a comfortable bus with treats from the guide and the driver, songs, dances, films, funny stories and incredible beauty scenery outside the window brightened up the time on the road. From the tour, I returned already another ... Part of the Georgian soul and identity will forever remain in my heart, as well as friends, whom I acquired during the trip. With joy I will come back to you again and again, which I recommend to everyone!

Полина Зубрилина: Thank you all very much for a pleasant company and a good time! It's even sad that the trip ended so quickly. Thanks to the Georgian side for the warm welcome, patience and attentive attitude! Everything was very good! I think that I will go to Georgia yet, it remains only to wait for a direct flight! Oybek, thank you, that under your banner all of us have been gathered! ????

Geguti palace

Geguti palace

Geguti, about 7km south in the plains of the Rioni, was known in classical times as the Phasis. This gave its scientific name, Phasianus colchicus, to the pheasant, which was discovered here, perhaps by Jason.
Sioni

Sioni

The Sioni Cathedral of the Dormition (Georgian: სიონის ღვთისმშობლის მიძინების ტაძარი) is a Georgian Orthodox cathedral in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Following a medieval Georgian tradition of naming churches after particular places in the Holy Land, the Sioni Cathedral bears the name of Mount Zion at Jerusalem. It is commonly known as the "Tbilisi Sioni" to distinguish it from several other churches across Georgia bearing the name Sioni. The Tbilisi Sioni Cathedral is situated in historic Sionis Kucha (Sioni Street) in downtown Tbilisi, with its eastern façade fronting the right embankment of the Kura River. It was initially built in the 6th and 7th centuries. Since then, it has been destroyed by foreign invaders and reconstructed several times. The current church is based on a 13th-century version with some changes from the 17th to 19th centuries. The Sioni Cathedral was the main Georgian Orthodox Cathedral and the seat of Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia until the Holy Trinity Cathedral was consecrated in 2004.
Petra Fortress

Petra Fortress

Petra (Greek: Πέτρα) was a fortified town on the eastern Black Sea coast, in Lazica in what is now western Georgia. In the 6th century, under the Byzantine emperor Justinian I, it served as an important Eastern Roman outpost in the Caucasus and, due to its strategic location, became a battleground of the 541–562 Lazic War between Rome and Sasanian Persia (Iran). Mainstream scholarly opinion identifies Petra with a ruined settlement of Late Antiquity at the village of Tsikhisdziri in Adjara, southwestern Georgia.

Жареная баранина с гранатом

Жареная баранина с гранатом

1-й вариант Жирную баранину обмыть, нарубить на небольшие куски, положить в кастрюлю и поджарить. При жарений мяса выделяется сок, который требуется слить в отдельную посуду и накрыть крышкой. Репчатый лук очистить, нашинковать, положить в, мясо, которое еще раз прожарить с луком, после чего залить мясным соком, добавить соль, молотый черный перец и тушить в течение 10-15 минут. Тем временем с граната снять кожуру и тщательно выбрать целые зерна. В тушеное мясо положить зерна граната, осторожно размешать (чтобы зерна граната не помялись) и посыпать сверху мелко нашинкованным: сырым луком. Это блюдо можно приготовить и из говядины. 2-й вариант Жирную баранину нарезать на куски, положить в кастрюлю, посыпать солью и прожарить до готовности. Затем добавить мелко нарезанную зелень киндзы и стручковый перец (сладкий) и через 2-3 минуты снять с огня, переложить на блюдо, посыпать мелко нашинкованным сырым репчатым или зеленым луком и зернами граната.
Кучмачи

Кучмачи

1. Потроха промыть и отварить в разных кастрюлях: все эти части разного цвета, а легкие к тому же разбухают и занимают много места. Первую воду после кипения можно слить и залить все второй водой. Рубец варит­ся 5–7 часов, сердце и легкое — 3–4. Затем нужно очистить ­потроха от жилок, жира и прочего лишнего. Это можно сделать и с сырыми, но с вареными легче. 2. Пока все варится, сделать аджику. Для этого нужно взять замоченные на ночь в воде стручки сушеного перца (воду слить) и пропустить их через мясорубку. Через нее же пропустить чеснок. Добавить к ним уцхо-­сунели, кориандр, чабрец и соль. Тщательно смешать. Пропорции специй можно менять по своему усмотрению, делая аджику менее или более острой, пахучей, соленой. 3. Готовые потроха нарезать небольшими кубиками и перемешать с аджикой. Нарезать лук — не очень мелко, средне. Чем больше жареного лука, тем ­вкуснее кучмачи: можно легко увеличить количество грамм до 100 на порцию. Затем нарубить кинзу — и тоже не стоит мельчить. 4. В сковороде разогреть растительное масло. Положить лук и обжарить до золотистости. Добавить томатную пасту, перемешать. Прибавить потроха и слегка (потому что они уже готовы) обжарить. Добавить половину кинзы, перемешать и подержать еще полминуты. 5. Разложить кучмачи по тарелкам — а лучше по глиняным сковородкам кеци: они хорошо держат тепло, а блюдо должно быть огненно горячим. Сверху посыпать оставшейся кинзой и зернами граната. Подавать кучмачи лучше всего с мамалыгой и кукурузными лепешками мчади: и то и другое пресное — как раз чтобы не перебивать вкус соленых и острых от аджики потрохов.
Баранина с айвой и вином

Баранина с айвой и вином

Чтоб сделать это блюдо необходимо обжарить до запеченного состояния айву, далее, переместить ее в отдельную тару. На той же сковороде обжарить кусочки мяса баранины с луком и болгарским перцем, и как только мясо будет практически готовым, добавить к нему айву, влить немного белого вина и тушить блюдо до готовности. Все готовится довольно быстро, а вкус айвы с бараниной - очень интересный. 1. Баранину промываем, обсушиваем бумажными полотенцами и нарезаем на небольшие кусочки. 2. Луковицу и болгарский перец почистим и нарежем соломкой. 3. Айвы разрежем на 4 части, удалим сердцевину, а потом каждую четвертинку порежем еще на 3-4 кусочка, чтоб получились ломтики, толщиной не более 0,5 см. 4. Далее, нужно на небольшом количестве растительного масла, несколькими партиями обжарить айву (чтоб она помещалась в сковороду одним слоем). Обжариваем вначале один слой айвы. 5. Потом переворачиваем ее, и обжариваем с другой стороны до такого же запеченного состояния 6. Как только вся айва будет обжарена, переложим ее на отдельное блюдо и присыплем небольшим количеством сахара, чтоб слегка уравновесить ее собственную кислинку и кислый вкус белого вина, которое мы также будем использовать в этом блюде позднее. 7. Теперь быстренько обжариваем на той же самой сковороде баранину не более 7-10 минут. 8. После чего отправляем к ней порезанные соломкой лук и болгарский перец. 9. Обжарим мясо с овощами минут 5, посолим по вкусу и сдобрим специями. 10. Вольем белое вино, накроем крышкой, и потушим блюдо минут 15 на среднем огне под закрытой крышкой. 11. Далее, добавим к мясу айву, накроем сковороду крышкой еще раз, и протушим все вместе еще минут 10, после чего, баранина с айвой готова и ее можно сразу же подавать на стол. Всем приятного аппетита и удачи в приготовлении описанного выше рецепта баранины с айвой. Источник: http://cookingman.ru/
