I’m excited and happy to announce that I’ll be heading to Gilroy at the end of the month for the Gilroy Garlic Festival and I’ll be covering the Great Garlic Cookoff from on stage! I get to be right in the middle of the action with some of my competitor friends! Just like last year, except that I won’t be cooking this time around, so it will be less stress and more fun for me!
I can’t wait to check out all the recipes and wallow all morning in the rich smell of sweet and pungent GARLIC! I hope to see some of you there!
And yes, I promised a giveaway! I’m not giving away actual garlic. That would be smelly, but in a good way. What I’ve got is a fun new garlic gadget that I absolutely love! Have you seen the new Garlic Zoom by Chef’n?
While I was in Colorado Springs visiting my nephew and his wife and baby girl, we stopped by the “Chef’s Outlet.” Absolute heaven! I found several neato garlic related items, but this one was my favorite! I bought 2. One for me and one for you!
The Garlic Zoom is super easy to use–simply peel your cloves, fill the Garlic Zoom with the cloves, and roll! Perfectly chopped or minced garlic every time. You can chop 2-4 cloves at the same time with ease! It’s got a removable stainless steel blade and the whole thing is to rack dishwasher safe.
So those are technical “deets.” Now here is the fun part. Leave a comment below telling me your favorite dish with garlic. That’s it! Leave a comment by noon on Friday, July 12 and I’ll pick a winner at random from all comments.
