Throughout the ages, garlic has exerted a powerful fascination on humankind. It was placed in King Tut's tomb along with priceless ornaments of gold; it was eaten by Roman soldiers for strength and courage prior to combat; it was worn around the neck in the Middle Ages to scare off vampires.
Today scientists are discovering that garlic is a true "super food" that can be used to treat a host of ailments from heart disease to athlete's foot. And American cooks are learning what cooks of other cuisines have always known -- that garlic can impart a sensational flavor to any food with which it is associated.
Here author Charlene A. Braida draws from her own Italian cooking heritage and the best of ethnic cuisines to come up with 130 mouth-watering recipes -- from Stuffed Calamari and Ratatouille Fromage to Rosemary and Garlic Chicken.
She also shares tips on selecting, preparing, and storing garlic -- and how to grow one's own.
Let garlic's glorious pungency become part of your life with the help of this exciting cookbook.About the Author:
Charlene Braida was inspired to write Glorious Garlic after realizing that she had many excellent cooks in her family. Her mother, Theresa, a first-generation Italian-American, was her primary source for recipes and cooking tips, although many of her grandmothers' recipes are included as well. Charlene followed her mother around the kitchen for many months, compiling her recipes and converting "pinches or dashes or handfuls of ingredients into standardized units of measurement." By writing this cookbook, Charlene felt confident that her family's tradition of cooking with an abundance of garlic would be passed on to the next generation.
