“Every Georgian dish is a poem.” -Alexander Pushkin
On August 22nd, I am collaborating with Jenny Holm of The Georgian Table to bring you a feast highlighting the poetic dishes of Georgia. This is the first event I’ll be hosting at Court Tree Collective in Carroll Gardens.
August’s installment is a family-style supra, a Georgian Feast. The meal centers around perfectly roasted chicken served with homemade tkemali, a spicy condiment made with sour plums, garlic, and herbs. Accompaniments include homemade pasta, a fresh salad, garlicky eggplants, and vegetable-walnut pâtés redolent with fresh herbs and garlic. We’ll end the meal with homemade peach sorbet, walnut ice cream, and buttery strudel.
Georgia boasts one of the oldest wine-making cultures in the world, and you’ll have the opportunity to sample several varietals.
Tickets are $65, and you can reserve your seat here.
I hope to see you there!
