Best cooking class EVER !!

I've just come back from shopping buying walnuts. Why? Because I want to make this tasty & easy Georgian dip which I was introduced to by a very lovely lady during my stay in Tbilisi.I am making this dip for the second time now because friends & guests LOVE it ! It was taught to me while attending a cooking class. I was very reluctant to taste it at first because I am not crazy about anything with nuts.The nice Georgian lady ( Tina ) however convinced me otherwise...... She said that I "MUST " taste it seeing that it is a special,old Georgian recipe. The course was originally supposed to have been given by Tina's daughter , Teona ...however she was not available that day. One of the first things that we did was shopping at some near by local markets.Before we left we studied some recipes to decide what to cook.We decided on 2 chicken dishes made in typical Georgian fashion which were both delicious ! Whilst shopping Tina treated me like a family friend & even introduced me by name . Shopping is done differently there and one can still do shopping like in earlier times where one goes through the markets taking their time & examining the chickens very closely. I still do not know how they find out if a chicken is fresh or not but Tina certainly knows ! When we returned home we recuperated with a nice glass of homemade red wine made by Tina's husband. It is not surprising since Georgia is known for really good wine. . I loved it. We started cooking. I was cutting all kinds of vegetables, onions and garlic. Tina was preparing the chicken telling me in between how it has to be done. I had to do that with supervision .... think I did it right. We were a good team! The result was excellent and it tasted delicious !After finishing eating I was about to help clear the table. That is when Tina stopped me and said : " Just enjoy the moment and leave it there.... Let's chat !,.. We can clear the table later." And that is what we did! I learned a lot about the early and late history of Georgia since I could talk to a very highly educated friend. Yes,now I would say that because I truly felt like being part of the family. Instead of leaving at 13:00 I left at 16:00 ! That should tell you everything! I tried the chicken dishes back home... they tasted good but not as good as Tina's ! I will try it again. At the end ,Tina said that I had to try that walnut dip. " This is what we Georgians always have in the fridge. Believe me it tastes good! " So I accepted ... and I am glad that I did.... this dip is sensational! It tastes good with a piece of bread or with a piece of vegetable or as a side of a normal dish . You can combine it with everything! I am so glad that I had it and learned how to make it .... it takes only a couple a minutes . It is heavenly... but you really have to know how to make it. And there is only Tina who will tell you, NOT ME! To everyone who enjoys great Georgian cuisine...THIS is the course I would recommend ! I would certainly do this again in a heart beat. Not just because Georgian food is so rich and diverse, but because I would love to meet up with a friend again, Thank you / მადლობა Tina! Thomas

If you are looking for an authentic georgian cooking class, here's were you'll find it! Tina and her family were warmly welcoming us into their home. The day started with a tour to the big market, which was an experience on its own. We were strolling around the market with all the beautiful fruits & veggies, interacting with the locals and even try the food we would later use for our meals. Spontaneusly we then went to Tina's holiday home where we learned to cook several georgian dishes: Chakhopili, Shkmeruli, Ghomi, Lobio, Chadi, Corn and different Khachapuris. The meals turned out very well and it was delicious together with the their own house wine. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the whole experience and had a lot of fun. We would definitely do it again, if we come back to Georgia one day and can recommend it to anyone else!
