An ancient feast meets the modern supper club.
The supra, translated “tablecloth,” is a traditional Georgian feast combining all the essential components of Georgian culture: delicious food, evocative wine, beautiful music, and exceptional hospitality. Situated along ancient trade routes, Georgian cuisine has absorbed culinary influences from such wide-ranging places as China, Iran, the Steppes, and the Mediterranean, making it a unique and rich culinary culture. Guests will gather around our long table where we will present a series of dishes from Georgia and other places along ancient trade routes; combining traditional recipes with local California seasonal abundance. Throughout the family-style feasting, Kristine and David will present songs from Georgia, Eastern Europe, Italy, Greece, and beyond, teaching our guests a Georgian tune to truly participate in the supra experience. Sprinkled with ritual toasting and poetry throughout, our guests should expect a one-of-a-kind musical culinary experience while enjoying the beautiful views and funky atmosphere of the Sausalito Houseboats.
David Robert Johnson is a chef, tall ship sailor, and musician who utilizes his education as a geographer, environmental scientist, and world traveler to create unique and magical culinary combinations and experiences. Kristine is a composer, artist, and singer specializing in traditional music from Georgia, Eastern Europe, Ireland, and Scandinavia. She currently performs with the acclaimed KITKA Women's Vocal Ensemble and directs the Temple of Light Georgian Community Choir in Oakland, and the Headlands Folk Community Ensemble in Sausalito.
$100 per person. For an authentic supra experience, we maintain an 8 person minimum requirement for each event (tickets will be fully refunded three days prior to any event that does not meet the minimum requirement). 12 people is ideal, 18 is maximum. Proceeds of each event go to continuing research and song collecting trips to Georgia. Our aim is to bring a bit of the magic and beauty of Georgian culture, food, wine, and song to our communities in the Bay Area. Tickets available here.
