BE MY GUEST The Georgian Recipe for Cooking Success

25.00

From the times of the Golden Fleece right up to the digital age Georgia has always been a known leader in the arts of hospitality, food, and wine. Indeed ‘Georgian hospitality’ with its highly codified ‘supra’ is the axis and inner sanctum of the nation’s talent for charming its guests and invaders (of which there were many). Indeed some have suggested this may be the secret to the nation’s very existence today – food as a tool of cultural survival in which the enemy is systematically transformed into a friend.

Due to the turbulent fate of the country, many times Georgians have found themselves living away from their homeland. But for most this never prevented the indulgence of their table DNA, nor a continuing tradition of hospitality in their adopted lands. Not only an excellent means of adapting to the environment and cementing friendship, it helped keep their personal identity alive. The book explores the personal recipes of some of the most famous of them: George Balanchine, Tamara Toumanova, or even the hero of Napoleonic wars, Prince Bagration.
