If you are in the New York area and love garlic, there is a festival just for you: the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival. It will take place Sept. 23 and 24 in Saugerties, and will feature all sorts of garlic-associated goods from food to clothing. Tickets are $7 at the gate or $5 in advance. Check out the website for more information on that.
Now check out the food:
Garlic Food Court
Chow Down! You won’t believe the many different ways garlic can be used to enhance food. The full list is too long to include here. Here’s a tasty sampling of the foods available at last year’s festival:
beef on a stick
garlic fritters (kachori)
garlic ice cream (strangely enough, a crowd favorite!)
garlic mashed potatoes
roasted pork on a spit
garlic steak sandwiches
garlic turkey with mayo
garlic veggie sub
and garlic blackened green beans.
What’s better than garlic food for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Come and get it!
Obviously not the place to take a date…unless they are garlic friendly too…maybe.
But um, garlic ice cream??? Are they for real?
