Earlier today I attended a vegetarian cooking course.
During the preparation section of the course I watched in amazement as an entire head of garlic (a big one, approximately 12-15 large cloves) was systematically chopped up and added to food intended to feed 8 people.
I gotta tell you. That's a whole lot of garlic.
It is now more than 8 hours later. And my mouth is still burning from the garlic. Seriously. I have already brushed my teeth quite thoroughly with an electric toothbrush 3 times. And every time GLH gets near me, he quickly backs off and waves his hand in front of his face.
If garlic does indeed have medicinal advantages, I think I am covered for a good year or more.
And I need not fear an attack from a vampire.
Don't get me wrong. The food was actually quite good and I will make the recipes here at home.
But my use of the garlic will not be quite as, um, enthusiastic.
