Product Description

On a tiny farm in Northern California's wine country, amidst the vineyards, garlic maven Chester Aaron has spent a decade cultivating the deep-red Spanish Roja, delicate Guatemalan Ikeda, rose-tinged Chesnok Red---and 52 other exotic varieties of garlic. Others who benefit from his passion include such acclaimed restaurants as Chez Panisse, Oliveto, and the Zuni Cafe, garlic aficionados in 11 states who receive weekly shipments, and now, the readers of this marvelous book. In THE GREAT GARLIC BOOK you will find many fascinating facts, gardening and eating hints, and glorious recipes.  

But there is so much more to garlic than even savvy diners may suspect.  Did you know:  That Tutankhamen was buried with 6 perfectly preserved heads of garlic?  That studies suggest garlic may be able to reduce stress, regulate blood pressure, and do all sorts of other great things for your health?  That common white garlic found in supermarkets is only one of hundreds of varieties found worldwide?  That you can grow exotic garlics just about anywhere---from your backyard to an urban window box?  That you can make delicious roasted garlic in the microwave?  This is just a sampling of the fascinating facts, gardening hints, and glorious recipes to be found in The Great Garlic Book.

Contents: I. Garlic Facts and Fiction: Six milleniums of alliums, A consideration of taste, II. Growing Your Own: Growing garlic on your own, Health, Commerce, III. Tips and Recipes, Garlic Sources, Suggested reading & references.
