New Museum to Be Launched in Oni
At a briefing held prior to the government meeting on May 23, the Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze stated that a new local museum is to be built in the town of Oni, Racha. The Head of the Government focused on the importance of the development of the rural areas across the country and noted that providing appropriate infrastructure is vital in this case. -Regional development is a major priority for us. It is the only way to achieve inclusive growth in Georgia. To ensure equal development in the regions of the country, it is important to put in place relevant infrastructure in each of them,- stated Bakhtadze. The PM also accentuated the significance of the tourism industry for the general progress of Georgia. -Tourism is the best sector for inclusive growth. We are developing relevant infrastructure in our mountain areas. This very goal is served by the Georgian Government s decision to build a local museum in Oni,- he said. The new multifunctional museum in Oni is planned to integrate a conference hall, an archive, a library, a multimedia library, as well as an educational space for minors.

Shakespeare Here: Etseri, Svaneti
BLOG My wife has been putting her university background in drama to good use recently. There has been a call for short numbers by school pupils based on Shakespeare in the Mestia region, which will be shown in the capital on Saturday. She asked me to put together a selection of the Bard’s sonnets, which most conveniently are also available in good Georgian translations of the difficult English. Some of these will be read by pupils, as well as a short biography of the man, whose very identity is still under much question after these centuries. A recent theory is that he was actually a woman; not without supporting evidence. Intriguing. It’s the Grade 4 class who are getting the most fun, though, acting out the closing scene from Romeo and Juliet, leaning towards the great modern American-set movie version which introduced the play to a vast new audience. For me growing up, Shakespeare really benefited from video, coming alive in ways which the printed page alone failed to do for me. I can still remember Mad Max and Cruella Deville doing Hamlet in about 1990, nailing it. For our generations, cinema is an important medium, and I say, the more Shakespeare adapted into it, the better, to keep his legacy going without end. I drew the line at using a “real” toy gun borrowed from the shop for Juliet to kill herself upon discovering Romeo’s suicide, though; instead I offered to make a crude cardboard silhouette pistol, because I don’t want any young people or their parents getting ideas that we’re promoting murder of the self at all. I’ve added a cardboard mike for the reporter (narrator) and have offered an old camera and my tripod for the film crew who are involved with her. Practically every word from R J made it into this film version we’ve been watching, although swords were replaced with guns and Prince’s music, along with that of others, was added. Brilliant, unforgettable, fresh but timeless. The class have watched the required clips to see how it was done, to get a feel for it, and are full of enthusiasm which my wife prays will continue into their graduation some eight years from now. If so, the world will be at their feet. Her dramatic gifts are key, too, in helping them forget that they’re even using their 3rd language. Whether it’s having a passionate debate about a controversial subject, talking to foreign tourists who speak no Georgian or Svan or even Russian, the more the children can just get on with English as un-self-consciously as possible, the better. Plays are one medium for helping them do this. I hope my wife will have the chance to incorporate more drama into extra-curricular activities. The pupils love getting into it; some of them are real performers. Their parents usually know enough of the plot to follow along even if they’re not getting every word in English. And it’s helping show all generations that English knowledge here, in this little village high in the mountains, is wasted neither as entertainment nor as a help to future job prospects, here, in Mestia, in Tbilisi or anywhere in the world their hearts can dream of. Enough of apathy or of thinking that those dreams are nonsense, unattainable. The play’s the thing to set them on a course towards future success! Tony Hanmer has lived in Georgia since 1999, in Svaneti since 2007, and been a weekly writer for GT since early 2011. He runs the “Svaneti Renaissance” Facebook group, now with nearly 2000 members, at www.facebook.com/groups/SvanetiRenaissance/ He and his wife also run their own guest house in Etseri: www.facebook.com/hanmer.house.svaneti

Georgia & Israel Performers from the Oldest Nations Kicks Off
For the first time, an intercultural musical project has been launched by Tbilisi State Conservatoire (TSC) and the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (JAMD) bringing distinguished young musicians together. The project, named ’Performers from the Oldest Nations’ is dedicated to 26 centuries of Jewish-Georgian friendship and the future cooperation between the institutions. It involves the participation of young students from both countries in masterclasses, discussions and concerts. The first stage of the project (JAMD X TSC) will take place on 8-13 June. Students of JAMD will visit Georgia and take masterclasses delivered by TSC professors Lali Sanikidze and Nodar Nakaidze. Apart from students, Vice-President of JAMD, Professor Michael Klinghoffer, will pay a visit to Georgia and hold masterclasses for conservatory students and music school pupils. Within the program, two concerts are planned: on June 10, at 7 PM, joint concert of participants from both countries will be held at Steinway & Sons Georgia. This will be followed by a concert of JAMD students at the TSC Recitall Hall at 8 o’clock on June 12. Both concerts are free to attend. “I hope this project will create new friendships, connections and new musical interactions between two schools that have a great reputation and possess great traditions,” Klinghoffer told GEORGIA TODAY. “I hope that through this project we can build a long-lasting relationship. During my visit, I would like to meet people who I can share my ideas with about our role as music schools. This is on the one hand keeping and reviving the tradition and conserving it, and at the same time it is our goal to prepare the artists to change the world. There is less work and interest in the kind of music we do, but the 21st century is a time of independent musicians, and one of our missions is to educate and help students thrive in this wonderful world that holds many opportunities. I’m really looking forward to visiting Tbilisi for the first time,” he added. The second phase of the project (TSC X JAMD) is scheduled for the first half of October in Israel. Within the frames of the project, five Georgian students (pianists) will visit Israel and collaborate with AMD professors Vadim Monastirsky and Yaron Rosenthal. The masterclasses will be followed by concerts. A concert by participants of the project will be held at the Steinway & Sons Showroom and will be followed by a concert of the Georgian students at the Eden-Tamir Music Center. As part of the project, five students from each country have been selected. From the Tbilisi State Conservatoire: Aslan Chikovani, Lasha Kvaratskhelia, George Shiolashvili, Salome Goderdzishvili and Tamar Jincharadze; and from the and Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance: Hanan Becher, Omer Yaari, Dani Ozz, Eyal Urim, and Alexander Julakidze. The person behind the project is Georgian pianist Alexander Julakidze, who is currently pursuing his Master’s Degree at JAMD in Israel and who has held a number of concerts and activity promotes Georgian culture abroad. “For Tbilisi Conservatory students, exchange programs are not a novelty, so when I enrolled at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, I often talked about it with my musician friends, including Maestro Vadim Monastirsky,” he told us. “During one such conversation, I suggested we organize an intercultural project between TSC students and JAMD. The TSC Rector asked assistance from the Georgian Embassy to Israel to organize the joint project on the Jerusalem end and we signed a memorandum of cooperation between the two musical institutions. It is the first agreement between Israel and Georgia in this direction and this is the very first artistic event based on a new student platform. From the very beginning, the project was supported by Steinway & Sons Georgia and thus concerts of 10 musicians will be held at the Steinway & Sons Showroom venue. The initiative is also backed by the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture Aand Sport of Georgia, which has helped TSC and its students to promote their talent beyond the borders of the country many times.” “The newly established friendship between these two music schools is as important as the friendship between our nations, which counts more than 3000 years. Such a past gives a good basis to form new friendships, share knowledge and inspire one another. I appreciate Alexander’s initiative and I am sure that this project will have great results in many directions for students of both music institutions,” Rezo Kiknadze, Rector of the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, told us. “Deepening cultural relations between two countries is extremely important, since cooperation of the Hebrew world with Georgia goes beyond simple collaboration in many fields,” said Paata Kalandadze, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Georgia to the State of Israel. “This is a truly historic and significant occasion that traces its roots back centuries. Bringing new life to these roots through such projects is equally important for both nations. Israel is a fast-developing countries which can also be perceived as an important route for transferring Georgian culture to the international scene. We should engage in organizing joint cultural projects as well as take part in Israel’s international festivals. Israel is notable for its world-renowned musicians and orchestras, who are impressed by young Georgian pianists and their capacities and are eager to share their experience and knowledge with them,” the Ambassador said.

Елена & Ирина: Hello! If someone else doubts whether to entrust the organization of rest in Georgia to the My Sweet Georgia team, then I assure you that it is worth it! We are composed of 4 people, rested in the month of September in Batumi. Thanks to the My Sweet Georgia team, our holiday left the best impressions and desire to return again and again to a wonderful and hospitable region. Everything was arranged for the upper class! And accommodation in apartments overlooking the sea, and excursion program with a great guide Gocha! He is very grateful from our company! Thanks to everyone !!! We realized that we would be happy to be in Georgia again and again!

Ольга Турбина: The decision to go to Georgia was spontaneous. I certainly wanted a great guide. It was impossible to change the dates, because I decided to go immediately after the trip. For many years now I have asked you to help me in selecting Yulia's Vaska. And this time, as usual, I turned to her. . Without unnecessary inquiries, the tour was promptly selected. Oh, what wonderful guides I have! Gentleman George and Rusudan Japaridze. She is not just a guide, but the president of the guild of guides, a teacher at the university and a doctor of historical sciences? perfectly knowing the history of Georgia, Rusudan wonderful soul man! Loving his job. Sincere and open. I was imbued with her love for Georgia. However, it's impossible not to fall in love with Georgia! Architecture, nature, hospitality, delicious food-everything is on top! Perhaps this is the best country, from those where I was lucky to visit. And the best guides. I will return to Georgia necessarily!

Irina & Konstantin: 7-26 June 2018 traveled to beautiful Georgia with her husband, ordered an individual tour. The SweetGeorgia team at all stages of the trip planning gave good feedback, advised, chose, took into account all our wishes. Throughout the tour with us was Gocha Zurabovich, our guide, our driver. We are very grateful to this acquaintance, on this trip we found a wonderful friend in the person of Gochi) the atmosphere during the tour in every city, in every place wherever we were (and we were many where) were friendly, friendly, easy. Georgia is a very hospitable country! The route of our tour was observed according to the contract, but we made adjustments, if for example we wanted to suddenly go somewhere. The company is very loyal and flexible towards customers. Of the minuses I can say regret that we did not get to the dolphinarium in Batumi (swimming with dolphins), although it was mentioned several months ago. Because of the large flow of visitors, there were no tickets. I wish that tickets / reservations for such events were made in advance, and not in the & quot; last & quot; moment. You can write a lot and a long time, and still not express all the emotions that this trip gave us! We will necessarily arrive yet, and can even acquire real estate in this wonderful country) And we can say with certainty that the SweetGeorgia company can give its customers a wonderful variety of holidays in accordance with wishes! Special thanks to Yuri for the discount and attention to our pair. Thanks to Livani for the tour of old Tiflis, thank you for all the random and not casual acquaintances! Well, Gocha, our & quot; daddy & quot; we just adore! Very much we miss! Come with parents, with children, with loved ones, or just alone. In sunny Georgia you will not be alone!

Gaumarjos, Tbiliso!

Gaumarjos, Tbiliso!

THERE ARE CITIES that make sense. The streets glide along straight, clean lines, their names uniform from start to finish. Bridges are crossable. Signs point in the proper direction. Then there’s Tbilisi. Riotous and anarchic, the capital of Georgia is anything but organized. Locals use Soviet-era street names—Leselidze, Davitashvili, Perovskaya—found only on decades-old maps. Wine is sold in repurposed Coca-Cola bottles for a dollar a liter from boulevard underpasses. The electricity still cuts out in the heart of the “Kala,” Tbilisi's historic old town. Despite this—maybe even because of it—this city is one of the best, most strikingly original travel destinations in Europe or Asia, if not the world. Pop into an unmarked courtyard near the Armenian Norashen Church—overgrown with ripe pomegranates—and find yourself among well-fed stray cats in a bohemian artist’s studio (one of the workers may invite you for home-brewed, noxiously alcoholic chacha; he will not let you refuse, nor should you wish to). Sneak into the basement of the red-brick seminary across from Sioni Cathedral and buy Tbilisi’s best bread—dough thrown against the scalding sides of a circular tone oven—from an elderly kerchief-wearing woman for 30 cents a loaf. This Seaside Community Is Getting Swallowed by the Ocean Head up a slanting set of town house stairs in the fin de siècle neighborhood of Sololaki and find yourself in a speakeasy-style apartment café called Linville, where tables hide behind vines on wrought iron balconies and afternoon tango milongas take place under decorative Victorian parasols. Slip across the Dry Bridge, past the ruined frescoes of the former Grand Hotel, to the flea market and bargain with bearded ex-professors for wooden icons, Soviet-era gas masks, and Turkish tea glasses. Come more than once and the vendors will remember you (I buy my jewelry—traditional Georgian enameling—from the same seller every year; she recalls not just my taste, but that of the mother and grandmother I purchased gifts for). The cliché, of course, is that Tbilisi represents the epitome of East meets West: a Silk Road crossroads where Arab, Ottoman, Mongol, and Russian imperial forces each left their own distinctive cultural mark. And in the heart of the old town, where rugs dangle from whitewashed wooden balconies and bearded Georgian Orthodox priests jostle with tourists on narrow cobblestone streets, it’s a compelling fantasy. But the city's reality is far more complicated—and intoxicating.
Beach Holidays in Kvariati

Beach Holidays in Kvariati

Oh, we do know well that after a hard working year there's nothing that many of you want more than just relax on a sunny beach and have a few lazy days!

Sculpture Falcon and Pheasant

Sculpture Falcon and Pheasant

The emergence of Tbilisi fanned by poetic tradition. In the forests that covered in ancient times the territory of the future city, once hunted the Georgian King Vakhtang Gorgasali (452-502). Royal Falcon raised pheasant, and birds have disappeared from sight. Hunters rode toward the flight of birds, and after a long search came upon the source, which hit a falcon with his prey. Both birds were scalded: the source turned out to be hot. Amazed by what had happened, the king inspected the surroundings - the picturesque slopes covered with a green carpet of forests, the valley of the deep mountain rivers, numerous mountain springs, most of which were hot.

Сациви из курицы

Сациви из курицы

Готовить это блюдо научила меня моя грузинская бабушка, так что рецепт сациви из первых рук – делюсь! Делюсь и ее прямой речью — очень захотелось вспомнить и сохранить ее хотя бы в таком виде. Перевела свои грузинские воспоминания на русский язык — как смогла, но с любовью. Ничем другим я уже никогда не смогу отплатить моей Нино за те чудеса, которые она дарила мне каждый день. САЦИВИ, ГЕНАЦВАЛЕ! Литературный, но подробнейший «Нужна по возможности очень жирная курочка или индюшка(не меньше 1 кг), лучше всего с перышками из деревни от знакомого фермера)). Птичку почисть, помой как следует и поставь варить целиком на тихий огонь в просторную кастрюльку (обязательно отрежь попку-жировик). Во время варки все время снимай пенку — куриный бульон должен быть чистым и прозрачным. После того, как снимешь всю пенку, минут на 15-20 брось туда лавровый листик (не забудь потом вытащить). Курица же пусть варится до полной готовности. А ты время не теряй — мелко нарежь лук: 2-3-х штук средней величины будет достаточно. Лук должен быть красавчиком, не горьким и обязательно белого цвета. Нарезав, сложи его в сковородку и потуши на жире, снятом с бульона. Ничего страшного, если туда попадет немного самого бульона. Туши на очень тихом огне, очень долго, пока он весь не размягчится. Если курочка нежирная, тушить придется на сливочном масле — это хуже, но тоже можно. Потом возьми 250-300 г грецкого ореха, 1-2 зубчика чеснока и прокрути их вместе через мясорубку 2-3 раза. Выжми их (масло будет чесночно-ореховое). Не выжимается — не мучайся. Готовим дальше. В оставшуюся массу (жмых) добавь приготовленный лук и еще раз прокрути-выжми — должна получиться очень сухая масса. Теперь возьми ее и начинай потихоньку разбавлять куриным бульоном. Очень мед-лен-но, помешивая и растирая до однородного состояния деревянной ложкой. Одновременно добавляешь (тоже постепенно): + сухую киндзу + уцхо сунели (и того, и другого я люблю много, но ты попробуй с 0,5 чайной ложки — если покажется мало, повторишь) + щепотку красного молотого горького перца (опять же по вкусу, не перегорчи!) + щепотку корицы + щепотку желтого цветка (шафрана) + 1 столовую ложку муки без верха, тоже постепенно + 2 столовые ложки винного или яблочного уксуса. Медленно-медленно мешаешь — бульоном утапливаешь — специи добавляешь. Не торопись, здесь ювелирная работа и тренировка терпения — масса должна получиться без комочков. Ты готовишь ореховый соус к курице — весь смак сациви в нем. Теперь получившийся густой соус надо постепенно развести бульоном (но не всем, весь не уйдет просто) до состояния жидкой манной каши и поставить на тихий огонь. Варить, генацвале, до кипения, потом еще минут 5, а потом… Если «каша» сильно загустела, добавь еще бульон, если все нормально, соединяй с курочкой. Уже приготовленной, то есть нарезанной аппетитными кусками. И вот все это вместе теперь вари минут 15 на очень тихом огне. Продолжай добавлять бульон, уже на огне, по мере загустения сациви, помешивая (орех имеет такую привычку). Бульон уйдет не весь, но большая часть. Почти в конце добавь еще 2-3 горошины душистого перца, столько же цветков гвоздики + соль по вкусу. Да, вот еще. Когда закончишь варить, вынеси на балкон, дай сациви остыть. А потом обрати внимание на консистенцию: если она гуще жидкой манной каши, разведи еще бульоном (должен был остаться), если нет — все в порядке. Некоторое время сациви должно постоять, чтоб все ингредиенты объединились в подлинной любви, смешавшись и взаимно пропитавшись. В холодное сациви из курицы можешь вернуть орехово-чесночное масло, если оно у тебя получилось. П. С. Все специи регулирую, во-первых, в зависимости от размера птицы, а во-вторых, по капризу своему. И пусть аппетит не опозорит тебя, да. П. П. С. Знаешь, зачем ты приготовила сациви, генацвале? Чтобы твой мужчина, твои дети, твои друзья не теряли вкус к жизни. Тогда и ты будешь счастлива.» ======================================================================= Разделайте и сварите курицу 1,5-2 кг с букетом гарни. Курицу можно (и нужно, если есть возможность) заменить индюшкой. Очистите луковицу и чеснок, мелко нарежьте и спассеруйте в растительном масле. Подготовьте грецкие орехи. Обратите внимание: чем они белее, сочнее и мясистее, тем вкуснее и красивее получится сациви. Растворите в кипятке щепотку шафрана и оставьте его настаиваться. В аутентичном сациви используется имеретинский шафран, или так называемый «желтый цветок». Последний — в виде порошка — добавляется вместе с другими специями и не нуждается в растворении в воде. Измельчите лук и спассеруйте его в оливковом масле на сковороде. На заметку: в сациви из курицы лучше использовать сладкие сорта лука, но не фиолетовый, чтобы сациви не получилось темным. Рецепт сациви: фото 7 Рецепт сациви: фото 8 Рецепт сациви: фото 9 Вообще специи — отдельная тема. Добавляйте, кроме шафрана, уцхо сунели, кинзу, красный перец, душистый перец, корицу, гвоздику. Если курица уже сварилась, извлеките ее из бульона, остудите и нарежьте на куски. Бульон процедите через марлю. Прокрутите через мясорубку вместе чеснок и орехи. Одного раза недостаточно — прокрутите 2 или 3 раза. Выжмите из полученной смеси масло. Добавьте к ней спасерованный лук, еще раз прокрутите и выжмите. Добавьте небольшое количество сухих специй. Теперь самое главное. Медленно и осторожно, небольшими порциями, постоянно помешивая, добавляйте горячий куриный бульон. Одновременно, тоже постепенно, добавляйте специи и бальзамический уксус. Должен получиться густой однородный соус (см картинку). Получившийся соус аккуратно разбавьте бульоном и поставьте на тихий огонь до закипания. После того, как он закипит, пусть поварится еще минут 5. Не снимая соус с огня, выложите туда все приготовленные кусочки мяса. Вылейте почти весь бульон и варите минут 15-20 на медленном огне. В самом конце киньте гвоздику и душистый перец, посолите. Осталось сациви из курицы остудить и оценить гущину соуса. Если получилось слишком густо, разведите еще бульоном, который должен был остаться, в крайнем случае — горячей кипяченой водой. С чем подают сациви, с чем его едят? С гоми, например, — кукурузной кашей вроде мамалыги. Если сациви получается острым, уходит много мчади (кукурузные лепешки) или лаваша. Что осталось несказанным? Сациви по-грузински едят холодным! Сациви подходит вкус граната, но он совсем необязателен. Обо всех остальных секретах приготовления читайте выше. С сайта : http://volshebnaya-eda.ru
