IN GEORGIA IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER SUDDENLY, THE SNOW FELL
Monday, July 1, in Georgia at the mountain resort of Bakhmaro, the snow fell. As reported gurianews, the snow started yesterday evening and continued to fall Monday morning. According to the Director of the complex “Bakhmaro” David Sajaia, neither he nor the local old-timers do not recall that it snowed in July.

Bakhmaro is a mountain village in Chokhatauri municipality, Georgia, located at an altitude of about 2000 meters above sea level and known for its salubrious climate

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!

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.

Анатолий: Good day! Well, here we are back ... .. We went to Georgia this year. I started planning, as I used to, 2 months before the trip. Such earlier planning is understandable if you know that we travel by car from home in Moscow and then to the country that we choose and drive a car along the route developed in advance. Studied the Internet, booked hotels, checked with guidebooks ... Almost made up the entire route and then I went to Zello radio and went to the Sweet Georgia.org channel. I talked with the natives of the channel and then I got into mudflow, an avalanche of information. At first I thought it was a divorce, but then, analyzing, I realized that I had to take a closer look and listen. We sketched the route and facilities are required and not very mandatory to visit. Corrected me from the recklessly laid route and unsafe for my car. They offered me help in organizing and accompanying my trip. Escort remotely through a communication system. At the same time indicated the cost of their assistance. Initially, I thought it was probably a lot ... But now, on the fact of the trip, I can say that this is a low cost and THIS is worth it! And then came our vacation !!! According to the channel’s advice, we didn’t stop in Kutaisi for 1 day, but for 2 days and booked a tour. We were advised to guide Tatiana. Great guide. He knows very well and gives interesting facts. Beautiful and well-constructed speech. The facts she gave verified from credible sources and interesting. A pleasant person with pleasure spent all day with her. Tatiana is a person who is passionate about the work she does We recommend Tatiana as a guide to anyone who wants to visit Kutaisi and learn interesting facts about the history of the ancient city and its surroundings. On the advice of the channel, we visited Batumi and met with the guide Gocha Diasamidze. We have seen so much ... I can say that without Gocha, we would not open it all up 1 day, but 3-4 days. I liked the factory for the production of wine, the bridge of Queen Tamar ... Evening Batumi is just beautiful. Dancing fountains are great! And how much we learned a lot about the streets of the old city and its traditions. Loved the guesthouse George in Telavi! Beautiful house, an interesting person George. It helped us to find and put in order the car. Our third guide was Levani in Tbilisi. If we consider that my wife lived in Soviet times in Tbilisi and thought she knew the city, then after 10-15 minutes she understood that she did not know the city! Such a flow of information first threw us into confusion, but then we quickly got used to it and were full of attention. It was especially interesting that Levani constantly greeted many people ... It even seemed to me that he was a living mascot of Tbilisi. At the same time, he gave us so much information that we still have to digest it for a long time. George It was our guardian angel. George could tell where to turn and what to do! It so happened that we confused the road to the Martvili gorge. Georgy, being on the sidelines ... suggested what to do and we came out on the right path. When I had a problem with the wheels, thanks to the bad roads of Georgia, he suggested the addresses and what to do, and we solved the problem. If you decide to go to Georgia, as we do by car, I strongly recommend using it! The only thing that was sad when the message came from George: =Dear Friends! That ended the official part of our contract! We hope you enjoyed it! = Liked! Very, very pleased Georgia. People, nature, cuisine, history, moods and ... ... George and his help. Without this help, we would not see half of what we saw. If anyone doubts or wants to ask and clarify, you can write natanb@yandex.ru. It is a pity that now there has been cloudiness in the relationship. I am sure this political foam will subside and again we will travel and fly towards each other. If they say terrible Barmaley in Georgia! Do not believe. Inadequate and mentally ill people are everywhere. We got these two. Well, it's good that they got caught. They only shaded the sincerity, cordiality and friendliness of the real Georgians. Come to Georgia with a smile, and everything will be fine. Sincerely, Anatoly.

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!

Квари - вареники с сыром

Квари - вареники с сыром

Квари - это вареники с грузинским сыром сулугуни. В Грузии это блюдо особо почитают в западном регионе Менгрелия. Начинка в квари обязательно сырная, хоть и допускаются некоторые добавки, например тыквы или зелени. В Грузии традиционно квари готовятся со смесью имеретинского рассольного сыра и сулугуни, а в Абхазии для начинки используется брынза с добавкой семян кинзы (цыбры). Но там, где имеретинский сыр не найти, как вариант, приготовьте начинку из смеси адыгейского сыра с сулугуни. Или из одного сулугуни, так будет вкуснее всего! Приготовить квари несложно, сложнее научиться защипывать, формируя традиционные «гребешки», сжимая край теста тремя пальцами (один вверху, два внизу). . Итак, сперва делаем начинку. 250 граммов сыра тщательно разминаем и подсаливаем так, чтобы масса была заметно солёной. Если начинка вышла слишком сыпучей можно добавить пару столовых ложек кипячёной воды - чтобы она легко скреплялась в комочки (которые мы будем вкладывать в кружки теста). Тесто. Высыпаем в миску полкило муки, разбиваем в неё 2 яйца и подливаем воду, размешивая руками. Тесто готово, когда оно перестаёт липнуть к рукам. Раскатываем тесто с помощью скалки, как для обычных пельменей. Большой кружкой вырезаем круги... - вы же знаете, как это делается, зря я пишу? =) Когда кружки теста готовы, пакуем в них начинку. Варим в зависимости от толщины теста до готовности (6-7 минут), чуть-чуть подсолив воду. Выкладываем на тарелку и смазываем небольшим количеством сливочного масла. Можно и без масла. Из указанных в рецепте количеств получается две большие, сытные порции вкусняшки под названием квари. Очень вкусно есть такие грузинские вареники со сметаной. Вот и весь рецепт =)
Салат «Тбилиси»

Салат «Тбилиси»

В Грузии любят вкусно поесть и, определенно, знают толк в хорошей еде. Самые вкусные блюда этой кухни обязательно готовят с обилием овощей, зелени и разных полезных специй. Полезные продукты, использующиеся в изобилии в грузинской кухне – это ее отличительная черта. Многие известные блюда грузинской кухни стали известны далеко за пределами этой прекрасной страны. И салат «Тбилиси» – в том числе. Этот салат готовится из красной фасоли, мяса, овощей, зелени, орехов и специй. Все ингредиенты – доступные, приготовление – быстрое и простое. Но благодаря прекрасному вкусу и яркому внешнему виду такой салат можно смело подавать даже на праздничный стол. Если для салата используется красная сухая фасоль – заранее ее замочить на 8-10ч, затем до готовности отварить (солить за 5мин до конца варки). Полукольцами нарезать салатный красный лук, влить винный уксус в посуду с луком, перемешать и на 15мин оставить мариноваться. Слегка измельчить и подсушить в сухой сковороде грецкий орех, остудить и измельчить его помельче. Мелко порубить чеснок и очищенный от семян перец чили, соломкой нарезать болгарский перец, отваренное мясо нарезать некрупной соломкой или кубиком. Перемешать подготовленные продукты (с лука уксус не сливать), добавить рубленую кинзу, чили перец и чеснок, орехи, приправить хмели-сунели и черным перцем, дополнительно заправить салат винным уксусом, а также маслом оливковым, перемешать и настоять перед подачей 30-40мин. Приятного аппетита! Можно использовать для салата консервированную фасоль – взять 1 баночку в собственном соку. Количество перца чили определяется по вкусу – если делать салат сильно острым вы не хотите, то используйте его поменьше. Вместо говядины для этого салата можно брать отварную курицу или индейку.
Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Эта курочка родом из Рачи. Рача (по-грузински это слова звучит немного иначе, но в русском языке нет согласных, которые бы точно могли передать некоторые грузинские звуки) - это тоже западный и тоже историко-этнографический район Грузии. Рача высокогорный регион, природа там красоты неописуемой, люди очень спокойные, даже медлительные и задумчивые, поэтому про рачинцев рассказывают смешные истории, где они понимают происходящее спустя долгое время, иногда даже годы. Это, конечно, шутка, но не без основания. Думаю, многие из вас хоть раз, да слышали слово "Хванчкара", это фантастическое вино тоже родом из Рачи, виноград, из которого оно получается растет в одном-единственном селе - Хванчкара, на высоте 560 метров над уровнем моря. Еще в Грузии славится рачинская ветчина, выделанная особым способом и лобио. Так вкусно, как готовят лобио в Раче, не готовят больше нигде! И конечно, лобиани - хлеб с фасолью, популярный по всей стране не меньше, чем хачапури. А теперь о сегодняшней курочке. Факт очень необычный, но факт. Крестьянское блюдо имеет точное место происхождения и даже известна фамилия человека, впервые приготовившего его. Шкмерули происходит от названия рачинского села Шкмери, расположенного на высоте 1720 м. над уровнем моря, там легко можно достать облака рукой, а приготовил его некий Гловели, но это как раз очень просто, почти все, кто там живет, носят эту фамилию. Говорят (за достоверность не ручаюсь), что блюдо это стало результатом крестьянской бережливости. Как-то у этого самого крестьянина возникла, скажем так, проблема с забитой птицей. Жалко было отдавать собакам целую курицу, вот и решил он попробовать ее спасти, а использовал то, что было под рукой. Зато теперь это очень популярное и очень вкусное блюдо! И еще одно отступление, но по теме. Для приготовления шкмерули используется традиционная в Западной Грузии глиняная сковорода - кеци, которая раскаляется на углях и долго и хорошо держит тепло. Я понимаю, что вы эту сковороду не то что иметь не можете, но и слышите о ней, возможно, впервые, я использовала ее для поддержания аутентичности, но как спокойно обойтись без нее, станет ясно из рецепта Курицу солим, обмазываем растительным маслом и жарим, можно в духовке, можно на плите, как вам удобно и привычно Пока жарится курица, почистим и раздавим (или растолчем в ступке) чеснок и отмерим молоко и воду Готовую курицу разделаем, жир, образовавшийся при жарке, сольем в пиалу Укладываем кусочки курицы в сковороду с высокими бортами или в кастрюлю с низкими, а лучше в красивую керамическую форму, которую можно ставить на огонь И готовим соус. Соединяем воду и молоко, доводим до кипения, чуть-чуть солим, не слишком, курица ведь соленая, вливаем в него немного жира, оставшегося от жарения, кладем чеснок, перемешиваем и выключаем Горячим соусом заливаем курицу. Поскольку кеци, на котором лежит курица должно быть горячим и соус тоже только с огня, в оригинале блюдо готово, но за неимением данного приспособления, мы поступим очень просто - поставим сковороду с курицей и соусом на низкий огонь на 1-2 минуты. Подают это блюдо горячим, так чтобы соус пускал пузырики, но если после обеда что-то останется, поставив это что-то в холодильник, на следующий день вы найдете курицу в желированном соусе, и это будет тоже очень вкусно!
