Elephant garlic (Allium ampeloprasum var. ampeloprasum) is a perennial plant belonging to the onion genus. It is not a true garlic, but actually a variant of the garden leek. It has a tall, solid, flowering stalk and broad, flat leaves much like those of the leek, but forms a bulb consisting of very large, garlic-like cloves. The flavor of these, while not exactly like garlic, is much more similar to garlic than to leeks. The flavor is milder than garlic, and much more palatable to some people than garlic when used raw as in salads. It is sometimes confused with solo garlic.

I am sure it will be a nice event. Indians use a lot of garlic . I had told my friend not to cook dishes using too much  garlic when her house was listed . She does not like to cook so told her husband that I said not to cook so they could go out to dinner

What a fun festival and I love the advertising for it too! How could anyone resist or say no? Garlic has so many interesting stories and good recipes too!

Oh boy. I would love to be there for this festival. I absolutely love garlic. Biker Boy (Mike) and me had dinner at a new Italian place in town, tonight. The food had big chunks of garlic. We were in heaven.

Garlic pancakes and syrup? That sounds like a stretch to me. How were they?
