Francophonie Festival March 18, 2016

Another success story!

Georgian Center in collaboration with Embassy of Georgia presented the Georgian culture and heritage at the Embassy of France. Hundreds of guest visited Georgian table and most learned how to pronounce khachapuri, khanjali, chokha and enjoined Georgian wine and fabulous atmosphere.
The annual Francophonie Cultural Festival spotlights the music, art, literature, film, cuisine, and customs of French-speaking countries and regions from across the globe, and its closing celebration is always magnifique. Although Georgians are not a French speaking nation we are friends with every friendly nation and this is especially true about France with whom we share culture, history and wine making traditions. 

Our team really worked hard to make this evening most enjoyable and memorable both for guest and for our organization.  And of course we could not have done it without our sponsors:

 Embassy of Georgia provided great Georgian wine and logistical support


 Georgian Feast provided DC's favorite Georgian food khachapuri


My Mom’s Cookbook provided Georgian Bazhe and tea for the guests to sample 



Special thanks goes to Giorgi Shermazanashvili for providing beautiful arial video of Georgia's different regions and sites
