19th Century Nobility Portraits on Display in Sighnaghi
Eastern Georgia s picturesque town of Sighnaghi is set to host an exhibition of 19th century portraits of the country s noble families, showcasing their legacy and artistic trends of the era. Hosted by the Georgian National Museum at the network s Sighnaghi Museum venue, the show will be centered around over 40 paintings of historical figures of the royal court and nobility, including King Erekle II, Queen Darejan and Tekla Batonishvili, which will form the central point of the exhibits. Organizers revealed some of the exhibits would be displayed publicly for the first time, a part of them following conservation and restoration work carried out by experts. At its emergence, portrait art for royal court personalities in Georgia had commonalities with the European genre of the same type. However, they also feature the distinct manner of their painters and influences generated by Georgia s ties with Imperial Russia and the Western world. This later evolved into a style referred to as the =Tiflis Portrait School,= titled after the old name for the capital city. In works created under this School, smaller-size portraits featured feudal era nobility and the new bourgeoisie, with the style of works persisting until the 1860s and 1870s. Beside the paintings, the exhibition, to last until September 21, it will also include works in sculpture and miniature genres.

Gov t Finances Anaklia Echo Waves Instead of GEM Fest
This summer the government will allocate funds for Anaklia Echo Waves Festival instead of the Georgian Electronic Music Festival (GEM Fest). The Anaklia Echo Waves Festival will be funded within the Check in Georgia Project and will get 4,160,000 GEL from the state budget. According to the governmental order, the festival Anaklia Echo Waves is to be a very important tourist-cultural event. The festival will be held in Anaklia on August 23-26, 2018. The total cost of the project is 6 million GEL. The remaining 2 million GEL will be provided by the festival organizers. According to the National Tourism Administration, among the festival participant artists will be: Solomun Juan Atkins Dzijan Emin GPO Francesco Tristano Guti live The National Tourism Administration states that negotiations are ongoing with world-renowned live performers and DJs who will make the festival more solid and attractive. In addition to music, the festival includes sports and recreational activities, various artistic and cultural events, and social and educational projects. The festival will be held under the umbrella of EXIT one of the best and most popular festivals in Europe. EXIT has been held in Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Romania and Bosnia since 2000. As for the GEM Fest, the month-long electronic music festival was held for the third time in Georgia from July 14 to August 14 in Georgia s Black Sea town of Anaklia in 2017. Despite the large number of world-famous artists and DJs, this year the festival experienced numerous problems, including the death of a 22-year old girl and poisoning of more than 20 others, allegedly due to psychoactive drug -Bio- or Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate (GHB), which has been seen increasingly throughout Georgia of late. Another problem alleged financial violations during the festival, for which the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia launched an investigation in August. Due to these financial issues, around 300 employees of the festival complained they had not received their salaries. Giorgi Sigua, the founder and the organizer of GEM Fest, denied the allegations of embezzlement. He said he intends to hold the GEM festival in Anaklia, using his own funds, on August 9-12.

Сергей: They were in Georgia from November 13 to 21. We drove from west to east. An excellent trip! Excellent wine, now know what to buy, thanks to Goce. Excellent dances and great songs. I bought a CD of Georgian songs, amazing. Thank you Goche for an unforgettable trip. Good luck to you, friends! I want to draw the attention of Russian tourists such a quality of wine and at this price it is only in Georgia.

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!

Пеламуши

Пеламуши

Пеламуши – это традиционное сладкое блюдо. Готовят в холодное время года, а также обязательно на свадьбы и большие застолья застолья. У каждого региона Грузии свое пеламуши, но с другими названиями. Классическое пеламуши готовят из красного виноградного сока, а вот белый сок используют для свадебных столов, символ чистоты невесты. Сейчас виноград уже собран, сока виноградного много, так что пеламуши готовят в каждом доме. Надеюсь вам понравится это вкусное лакомство. В сок всыпываем муку и хорошо перемешиваем, чтобы не было комком (у меня на фото штука которой я мешала, название на русском ну никак не вспомню ). Некоторые (молодые хозяйки) процеживают сок через сито во избежание комков. Добавляем ваниль....это по желанию. А так же сахар, но это на ваше усмотрение, мой сок был очень сладким. И все хорошенько перемешиваем Ставим на средний огонь и постоянно помешивая варим до загустения. После нагревания сок поменяет цвет, масса будет загустевать. Если после того как пеламуши закипело и попробовав его вам показалось, что оно не сладкое, смело добавляйте сахар, он раствориться, пока вы будете варить пеламуши дальше. Когда масса загустеет, она станет очень густой и тянучей, уменьшаем огонь до минимума, а еще лучше если есть распылитель, и варим, постоянно помешивая до исчезновения привкуса муки. У меня ушло 15 минут. Горячий пеламуши раскладываем в заранее приготовленные пиалы или любую другую посуду. Можно разложить по тарелкам у нас так приянято, но мне не нравится. Вверх пеламуши разравнять ножом или ложкой смоченной в холодной воде. Пеламуши можно есть и горячим и холодным. Можно сварить пеламуши с любого компота (особенно вкусно с вишневого). Можно сварить только с пшеничной мукой, тоже очень вкусно . Также в пеламуши можно добавлять орешки, но у нас это для детей делают. Приятного аппетита Автор: Ingusha (Тбилиси)
Чурчхела в домашних условиях

Чурчхела в домашних условиях

Я, пожалуй, не ошибусь, если скажу, что из всех грузинских сладостей чурчхела самая популярная и любимая, каждый из нас пробовал ее хоть раз в жизни, а я предлагаю вам сделать чурчхелу самостоятельно. У меня чурчхела всегда ассоциировалась с летним отдыхом, потому что когда мы с мамой ездили отдыхать в Крым, то первое что я просила мне купить, была как раз таки она. И мне всегда было так интересно, как готовится чурчхела грузинская, и вот недавно я открыла для себя эту тайну. Если честно, моему удивлению не было предела, я-то думала, что технология приготовления сложна и не подвластна простым смертным. Однако оказалось, что приготовить чурчхелу грузинскую в домашних условиях может абсолютно любой человек, для этого не нужно никаких специальных навыков. Приступим. 1. Для начала мы берем нитку, складываем ее вдвое и на конце делаем крупный узелок. Затем разламываем грецкие орехи на половинки и нанизываем их на нитку (длина нитки 20-22 см), на конце нитки делаем еще один узелок, чтобы было за что подвешивать чурчхелу. 2. Теперь разливаем сок по двум кастрюлькам, одну половину сока ставим на огонь и нагреваем, а вторую смешиваем с мукой так, чтобы не было комочков. 3. Когда одна половина сока почти закипит, выливаем в нее вторую (смешанную с мукой). Перемешиваем все и добавляем в массу сахар, варим сироп, помешивая, на медленном огне минут 5. За это время он должен загустеть и стать по консистенции похожим на густой кисель. 4. Теперь нам необходимо окунуть каждую ниточку с орехами в сироп и подвесить ее на полчасика подсыхать, затем еще два раза окунуть в сироп чурчхелу с получасовым перерывом. 5. После всех этих процедур подвешиваем чурчхелу в удобном для вас месте, где она не будет мешать, и под подстилаем под нее клеенку, так как сироп некоторое время будет капать. Примерно через 3-4 дня ваше грузинское лакомство будет полностью готово. Приятного всем аппетита! Источник: http://povar.ru/
Шакарлама

Шакарлама

Этот рецепт взят с сайта "Рецепты Мари". Каждый батумчанин узнает эти замечательные печенья шакарлама с Батумским кофе. Шакарлама рассыпчатые печенья, которые имеют стандартную форму. Их любят и взрослые и дети. Оно долго храниться и не изменяет свой вкус. Сегодня я научу Вас их готовить. Масло или маргарин комнатной температуры разотрем или собьем миксером с сахаром. Добавим желтки и продолжим взбивать. Добавим ваниль и муку и замесим тесто. Тесто должно быть не крутое, немного мягкое. Чтоб отлипало от рук и держало форму. Вмешенное тесто разделим на небольшие шарики, чуть меньше чем куриное яйцо. Каждый шарик разделим на 2 половинки , разрезав ножом пополам. На смазанный маргарином противень разложим половинки шариков срезом в бок, смотрите как на фото. И запечь при 170 градусах до чуть румяной корочки. Полностью остудить. Густо посыпать сахарной пудрой. Я для себя открыла небольшой секрет. Если вместо 1 стакана муки взять 1 стакан крахмала, и добавить к муке, тесто получиться более рассыпчатое. Шакарлама готова! Приятного аппетита! http://receptimari.com/
