Product Details


“Everything you need to know about the most celebrated, and vilified, of stinky roots.”—The New York Times

“Garlic lovers unite and delight in Robin Cherry’s splendid and comprehensive edible biography of garlic. No other member of the Allium family has been as maligned and rebuffed throughout history as this stinky bulb. Yet, its powerful medicinal benefits have been touted for centuries. This masterful work integrates the history, legends, lore, and even vampire tales, along with an inspired selection of recipes from condiments to desserts. A must have book for a cook’s library.”—Diane Morgan, author of Roots: The Definitive Compendium

“I have always loved the diversity of flavors that garlic adds to a dish, depending on how you cook it.  This lovely historical and international tour of the many faces of garlic, with enticing recipes, is a wonderful addition to anyone interested in learning to use garlic in more ways in their kitchen.”—Tama Matsuoka Wong, forager for Daniel, NYC and author of Foraged Flavor
