  1. This sounds(and looks) fabulous in the best of garlicky ways! Thanks for posting about it. For all your fans in and near the Southeast area of the country, and I know they must count in the millions, there is a great Garlic Fest here in FL, too:, nicknamed – “The Best Stinkin’ Party in Town”. I love garlic and just moved, permanently, to SE-FL on 7/25, and hope to attend this aromatic event next February. I can’t imagine existing without garlic! Is it a spice, is it an herb, is it in the onion family? I don’t care – I love it and all its charms!

  5. Fantastic cool photos, I enjoyed this post a lot! :)


  6. So, Hannah … do you have a really good, garlic-infused, warm main dish you might post for us? Hmmmmm?


    • Goodness, what doesn’t go well with garlic?! I can tell you that I have one amazing garlic-infused cashew scampi recipe going into my upcoming cookbook… Oh, and a garlic bread soup, too! Sorry for the tease; I can’t wait to share more details!


  7. The garlic smell must be all over the place, Hannah. Shamely I don’t eat garlic! But I love all the picture that’s you took, amazing!


  8. It’s been a long while since the last time I was at that garlic festival. If I remember correctly, it was very hot even early in the morning and there was basically nothing vegan. Hopefully that has changed since. :-)


    • One would think that California, of all places, when a festival is going on that there would be Vegan choices of eats! I mean, come on, we’re talkin’ the Sprout Capitol of the Planet here!!


      • It’s true, but I’m sad to say that there’s a dearth of vegan options for miles around here. You’re looking at the full extent of plant-based edibles right above! Even the garlic mushrooms are sauteed in butter, as are the grilled ears of corn, and so forth. Plan to make a stop on the way there, and the way back, for actual food.
