Prime Minister of Georgia on Declaring Universal Quarantine
The government made the decision to significantly tighten measures within the framework of the state of emergency, which will take effect at 8:00 in the morning tomorrow, stated Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia at a briefing held after the conclusion of a session of the Interagency Coordination Council on the coronavirus. Todays session took place in an extended format and was attended by the mayor of the capital, members of the Cabinet of Ministers, and senior officials from the Center for Disease Control, in addition to members of the council. "We have decided to significantly tighten measures within the framework of the state of emergency. Effectively - and I would like to emphasize this - effectively, we are declaring universal quarantine, which will begin tomorrow, at 8:00 in the morning. This quarantine means the following: • It is completely forbidden to travel using any type of public transport (including the subway), both within and between cities and municipalities. • It is only permissible to travel using light vehicles (including taxis), and only if the recommendation of the Ministry of Healthcare has been taken into consideration, i.e., if there are no more than three persons in an automobile, with the essential condition that the two persons are seated in the rear seat. This is a very important recommendation and relevant state bodies will make the appropriate decisions in case of noncompliance. • Also, it is only permissible to carry passengers for the purpose of transporting employees of facilities of strategic importance in an organized and safe manner. • Gathering of more than three persons is forbidden, with the exception of grocery stores and pharmacies, where maintaining a social distance of two meters is mandatory . • Furthermore, rules governing the operation of enterprises that are permitted by the government will be set out separately; they will have separate protocols that will be agreed with the Ministry of Healthcare. We are doing this so that the economy can continue to function and to ensure that the potential that the Georgian economy possesses is not brought to a standstill, as well as, of course, to ensure that our citizens can retain their jobs as much as possible. • Our citizens above 70 years of age will be forbidden from leaving their homes unless they are going to their nearest grocery store, their nearest pharmacy, or their nearest medical facility. • If our citizens above 70 years of age live alone, the Ministry of Healthcare and the Ministry of Economy, as well as local municipalities, are obligated to provide them with assistance. • Most importantly: Effectively, a full quarantine will be declared for the duration of the state of emergency. It will be forbidden to move on foot or using any other mode of transportation in the cities and throughout the entire country between the hours of 21:00 and 06:00. Effectively - and I would like to emphasize this once again - effectively, this means that a so-called curfew is being declared throughout the entire country between the hours of 21:00 and 06:00. • Checkpoints will be set up in the cities of Tbilisi, Batumi, Kutaisi, Rustavi, Poti, Zugdidi, and Gori in order to control the movement of individuals, to check their health status, and to ensure the fulfillment of the tightened measures under the state of emergency, as well as to provide initial thermal screening and to control the administrative borders of these cities. These measures will be carried out by the forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, with the involvement of the relevant agencies of the Ministry of Defense. • A very important point: Every citizen must carry their identity documents while moving within the city at any time," the prime minister of Georgia stated.

Екатерина: In this text, the word "wine" will be used indecently often! An excursion to Kakheti - the land of grapes and wine was unforgettable in many ways: a meeting right on the highway, escort, an excursion to the winery with a guide-director of this enterprise!)) Then we were expected by the hospitality of the Georgian family of winemakers. Along the way, we visited a wine tunnel where all the producers of Georgia store their wine all year round, it is impressive !!)) we were able to buy real wine with four bottles per brother, because you can’t take it anymore through Russian customs (((A large Georgian family of three generations, a wine cellar, tasting directly from wine amphora was waiting for us in the house, and then we were waiting for an laid table with Georgian specialties (do not believe it, the plates were three tiers up) and of course more sea of ​​wine and chacha. But it was not just eating and drinking - Tamada with traditional Georgian toasts and customs entertained us all evening)) there were songs and dances (by the way we prepared too, in Tbilisi we attended a master class in national dance) So so Tolya smoothly turned into fun, singing and a sweet dream in the hostel's bedchairs. I see a bunch of wine, chachi and moorrheeeee impressions !!)))) Thank George and company for the warm, cordial, clear organization ps the risk in such an excursion is one to sort out))))

Олег: Thank you so much for an unforgettable time in Georgia !!! But these memories would never have been so vivid, so full and so colorful, if there weren’t such beautiful companions as our guide Otari and the driver Giya !!!! Otari is a professional of the highest class, fluent in Russian !!! !!. He is not just a guide who knows the material perfectly, he is so in love with his profession that he lives on it and this is manifested in the smallest details and nuances of conducting excursions, but it’s worth it, it can even be said to be priceless !! To all of us. To friends and acquaintances and everyone who wants to visit Georgia and Tbilisi, we will recommend only SWEET GEORGIA, and as a guide, we only love Otari !!!! I would also like to say special thanks to the driver Guy, this is also a very high-class professional, and also a very helpful and considerate person !!!!! Many thanks, George, for organizing our wonderful unforgettable vacation in Georgia !!!! I wish you and your team success and more interesting, grateful customers !!!

Анатолий: Good day! Well, here we are back ... .. We went to Georgia this year. I started planning, as I used to, 2 months before the trip. Such earlier planning is understandable if you know that we travel by car from home in Moscow and then to the country that we choose and drive a car along the route developed in advance. Studied the Internet, booked hotels, checked with guidebooks ... Almost made up the entire route and then I went to Zello radio and went to the Sweet Georgia.org channel. I talked with the natives of the channel and then I got into mudflow, an avalanche of information. At first I thought it was a divorce, but then, analyzing, I realized that I had to take a closer look and listen. We sketched the route and facilities are required and not very mandatory to visit. Corrected me from the recklessly laid route and unsafe for my car. They offered me help in organizing and accompanying my trip. Escort remotely through a communication system. At the same time indicated the cost of their assistance. Initially, I thought it was probably a lot ... But now, on the fact of the trip, I can say that this is a low cost and THIS is worth it! And then came our vacation !!! According to the channel’s advice, we didn’t stop in Kutaisi for 1 day, but for 2 days and booked a tour. We were advised to guide Tatiana. Great guide. He knows very well and gives interesting facts. Beautiful and well-constructed speech. The facts she gave verified from credible sources and interesting. A pleasant person with pleasure spent all day with her. Tatiana is a person who is passionate about the work she does We recommend Tatiana as a guide to anyone who wants to visit Kutaisi and learn interesting facts about the history of the ancient city and its surroundings. On the advice of the channel, we visited Batumi and met with the guide Gocha Diasamidze. We have seen so much ... I can say that without Gocha, we would not open it all up 1 day, but 3-4 days. I liked the factory for the production of wine, the bridge of Queen Tamar ... Evening Batumi is just beautiful. Dancing fountains are great! And how much we learned a lot about the streets of the old city and its traditions. Loved the guesthouse George in Telavi! Beautiful house, an interesting person George. It helped us to find and put in order the car. Our third guide was Levani in Tbilisi. If we consider that my wife lived in Soviet times in Tbilisi and thought she knew the city, then after 10-15 minutes she understood that she did not know the city! Such a flow of information first threw us into confusion, but then we quickly got used to it and were full of attention. It was especially interesting that Levani constantly greeted many people ... It even seemed to me that he was a living mascot of Tbilisi. At the same time, he gave us so much information that we still have to digest it for a long time. George It was our guardian angel. George could tell where to turn and what to do! It so happened that we confused the road to the Martvili gorge. Georgy, being on the sidelines ... suggested what to do and we came out on the right path. When I had a problem with the wheels, thanks to the bad roads of Georgia, he suggested the addresses and what to do, and we solved the problem. If you decide to go to Georgia, as we do by car, I strongly recommend using it! The only thing that was sad when the message came from George: =Dear Friends! That ended the official part of our contract! We hope you enjoyed it! = Liked! Very, very pleased Georgia. People, nature, cuisine, history, moods and ... ... George and his help. Without this help, we would not see half of what we saw. If anyone doubts or wants to ask and clarify, you can write natanb@yandex.ru. It is a pity that now there has been cloudiness in the relationship. I am sure this political foam will subside and again we will travel and fly towards each other. If they say terrible Barmaley in Georgia! Do not believe. Inadequate and mentally ill people are everywhere. We got these two. Well, it's good that they got caught. They only shaded the sincerity, cordiality and friendliness of the real Georgians. Come to Georgia with a smile, and everything will be fine. Sincerely, Anatoly.

Gaumarjos, Tbiliso!

Gaumarjos, Tbiliso!

THERE ARE CITIES that make sense. The streets glide along straight, clean lines, their names uniform from start to finish. Bridges are crossable. Signs point in the proper direction. Then there’s Tbilisi. Riotous and anarchic, the capital of Georgia is anything but organized. Locals use Soviet-era street names—Leselidze, Davitashvili, Perovskaya—found only on decades-old maps. Wine is sold in repurposed Coca-Cola bottles for a dollar a liter from boulevard underpasses. The electricity still cuts out in the heart of the “Kala,” Tbilisi's historic old town. Despite this—maybe even because of it—this city is one of the best, most strikingly original travel destinations in Europe or Asia, if not the world. Pop into an unmarked courtyard near the Armenian Norashen Church—overgrown with ripe pomegranates—and find yourself among well-fed stray cats in a bohemian artist’s studio (one of the workers may invite you for home-brewed, noxiously alcoholic chacha; he will not let you refuse, nor should you wish to). Sneak into the basement of the red-brick seminary across from Sioni Cathedral and buy Tbilisi’s best bread—dough thrown against the scalding sides of a circular tone oven—from an elderly kerchief-wearing woman for 30 cents a loaf. This Seaside Community Is Getting Swallowed by the Ocean Head up a slanting set of town house stairs in the fin de siècle neighborhood of Sololaki and find yourself in a speakeasy-style apartment café called Linville, where tables hide behind vines on wrought iron balconies and afternoon tango milongas take place under decorative Victorian parasols. Slip across the Dry Bridge, past the ruined frescoes of the former Grand Hotel, to the flea market and bargain with bearded ex-professors for wooden icons, Soviet-era gas masks, and Turkish tea glasses. Come more than once and the vendors will remember you (I buy my jewelry—traditional Georgian enameling—from the same seller every year; she recalls not just my taste, but that of the mother and grandmother I purchased gifts for). The cliché, of course, is that Tbilisi represents the epitome of East meets West: a Silk Road crossroads where Arab, Ottoman, Mongol, and Russian imperial forces each left their own distinctive cultural mark. And in the heart of the old town, where rugs dangle from whitewashed wooden balconies and bearded Georgian Orthodox priests jostle with tourists on narrow cobblestone streets, it’s a compelling fantasy. But the city's reality is far more complicated—and intoxicating.

Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Эта курочка родом из Рачи. Рача (по-грузински это слова звучит немного иначе, но в русском языке нет согласных, которые бы точно могли передать некоторые грузинские звуки) - это тоже западный и тоже историко-этнографический район Грузии. Рача высокогорный регион, природа там красоты неописуемой, люди очень спокойные, даже медлительные и задумчивые, поэтому про рачинцев рассказывают смешные истории, где они понимают происходящее спустя долгое время, иногда даже годы. Это, конечно, шутка, но не без основания. Думаю, многие из вас хоть раз, да слышали слово "Хванчкара", это фантастическое вино тоже родом из Рачи, виноград, из которого оно получается растет в одном-единственном селе - Хванчкара, на высоте 560 метров над уровнем моря. Еще в Грузии славится рачинская ветчина, выделанная особым способом и лобио. Так вкусно, как готовят лобио в Раче, не готовят больше нигде! И конечно, лобиани - хлеб с фасолью, популярный по всей стране не меньше, чем хачапури. А теперь о сегодняшней курочке. Факт очень необычный, но факт. Крестьянское блюдо имеет точное место происхождения и даже известна фамилия человека, впервые приготовившего его. Шкмерули происходит от названия рачинского села Шкмери, расположенного на высоте 1720 м. над уровнем моря, там легко можно достать облака рукой, а приготовил его некий Гловели, но это как раз очень просто, почти все, кто там живет, носят эту фамилию. Говорят (за достоверность не ручаюсь), что блюдо это стало результатом крестьянской бережливости. Как-то у этого самого крестьянина возникла, скажем так, проблема с забитой птицей. Жалко было отдавать собакам целую курицу, вот и решил он попробовать ее спасти, а использовал то, что было под рукой. Зато теперь это очень популярное и очень вкусное блюдо! И еще одно отступление, но по теме. Для приготовления шкмерули используется традиционная в Западной Грузии глиняная сковорода - кеци, которая раскаляется на углях и долго и хорошо держит тепло. Я понимаю, что вы эту сковороду не то что иметь не можете, но и слышите о ней, возможно, впервые, я использовала ее для поддержания аутентичности, но как спокойно обойтись без нее, станет ясно из рецепта Курицу солим, обмазываем растительным маслом и жарим, можно в духовке, можно на плите, как вам удобно и привычно Пока жарится курица, почистим и раздавим (или растолчем в ступке) чеснок и отмерим молоко и воду Готовую курицу разделаем, жир, образовавшийся при жарке, сольем в пиалу Укладываем кусочки курицы в сковороду с высокими бортами или в кастрюлю с низкими, а лучше в красивую керамическую форму, которую можно ставить на огонь И готовим соус. Соединяем воду и молоко, доводим до кипения, чуть-чуть солим, не слишком, курица ведь соленая, вливаем в него немного жира, оставшегося от жарения, кладем чеснок, перемешиваем и выключаем Горячим соусом заливаем курицу. Поскольку кеци, на котором лежит курица должно быть горячим и соус тоже только с огня, в оригинале блюдо готово, но за неимением данного приспособления, мы поступим очень просто - поставим сковороду с курицей и соусом на низкий огонь на 1-2 минуты. Подают это блюдо горячим, так чтобы соус пускал пузырики, но если после обеда что-то останется, поставив это что-то в холодильник, на следующий день вы найдете курицу в желированном соусе, и это будет тоже очень вкусно!

Мцвади - настоящий грузинский шашлык

Мцвади - настоящий грузинский шашлык

Мцвади в Грузии делают преимущественно из говяжьего (бычьего) мяса. Распространен он чаще всего в трех следующих видах: собственно мцвади, т. е. шашлык из целой бычьей вырезки, так называемый целиковый или длинный шашлык, чрезвычайно редко встречающийся ныне в ресторанной кухне; шашлык из бастурмы, т. е. из предварительно подготовленного маринованного говяжьего мяса; этот вид получил наибольшее распространение за пределами Грузии, но с использованием баранины; шашлык из баранины с баклажанами, свойственный домашней кухне. Длинный мцвади Вырезку зачистить от пленок и целиком, во всю длину вдоль вдеть на вертел; при этом, чтобы вырезка во время жарения сохраняла форму и не сокращалась, плотно привязать ее к вертелу суровой ниткой. Обжарить, как обычный шашлык, над углями без пламени, вращая, причем предварительно или в процессе обжаривания обмазать ореховым или иным растительным маслом. Иногда до жарения шашлык перышком слегка смачивают соленой водой. Но этого можно и не делать, а посолить и поперчить или смазать аджикой уже готовый шашлык — так мясо будет сочнее. Готовый шашлык снимают с вертела, режут, как колбасу, поперек волокон с небольшим скосом ломтями толщиной 1,5 см, солят, перчат и заедают зеленью лука, кинзы, базилика или целиком обжаренными на вертеле помидорами, у которых затем снимают кожицу. Мцвади-бастурма Из говяжьей вырезки или из мяса других отделов задней части, тщательно очищенного от пленок и сухожилий, нарезать небольшие куски одинаковых размеров (например, 3x5 см) и сложить их в неметаллическую посуду (фаянсовую, фарфоровую, эмалированную), засыпав смесью соли, черного молотого перца, мелко нарезанного лука, молотого семени кориандра или ажгона, разведенных в 1-2 ст. ложках винного уксуса, перемешать, закрыть и выдержать в прохладном месте от 12 ч до 2,5 суток, после чего нанизать на вертел (лучше всего не на металлический, а на прутья из лиственных пород дерева) и обжарить над угольями. Чтобы мясо не подгорало и не обугливалось по краям, его обмазывают маслом, а угли слегка присыпают золой. Мцвади в баклажанах Баранину (корейку или заднюю часть), предпочтительнее молодую, нарезать кусками одинаковых размеров. Баклажаны надрезать глубоко вдоль и в разрез поместить куски баранины, посыпав их слегка солью и молотым черным перцем, после чего нанизать на вертел так, чтобы он захватил оба конца баклажана и все куски баранины. Обжарить над углями, вращая вертел так, чтобы куски баранины всеми своими сторонами поворачивались в открытый разрез баклажана. Баранину и баклажаны смазывают маслом, как и другие виды мцвади во время обжаривания (перышком птицы). Источник: В.В. Похлёбкин Национальные кухни наших народов. М., 2004 © recept.lovebody.ru
