The Georgian Table is hosting its first public event! I’ve teamed up with Wendy Stuart from Food Works Group consultancy to organize Khachapuri and Beyond: Flavors from the Other Georgia, a celebration of Georgian food and wine. Wendy and I traveled together in Georgia this past October and we are thrilled to be able to give DC denizens the opportunity to try some of the sumptuous flavors that define this country for us.
If you’re in the area, get your tickets now and join us on Friday, April 24 at Mess Hall, a new culinary incubator in the Brookland neighborhood of northeast DC. We’ll be serving unlimited wine and passed appetizers all evening, including (but not limited to!) decadent Megrelian khachapuri, spiced meatballs with pomegranate glaze, spinach pkhali, and fried eggplant with walnut-garlic sauce (as featured in the Washington Post last month).
Our friends at Georgian Wine House will be pouring Georgian white, red, and amber wines and will lead a guided tasting of five premium wines made in the traditional qvevri style at an additional charge. (Click here to purchase a ticket that includes this additional tasting.) We’ll also enjoy a surprise cultural interlude with special local guests.
