The store may be Chinese - but they sell local stuff as well as stuff from far and wide.

It's Tesco and Sainsbury garlic I steer clear of

I'm the same - I love garlic especially with chicken or inserted into slits in a leg of lamb before roasting.

Also topped and roasted with a sirloin medium rare steak, chips and fried onions

I usually put about eight cloves a chicken before roasting it.

Something we used to eat in France was whole garlic head which had been gently stewed in red wine for a couple of hours. You dismantle the garlic bulb into individual cloves and then squeeze the soft garlic flesh on to bread. Spread it out, mixing with olive oil as you go then dunk into the red wine that was used for stewing.
Cooked in this way, garlic is not at all pungent but sweet and subtle in flavour.

Essential to use good fresh garlic, not the dried up stuff so often available in the UK.


I like elephant garlic with the very top removed, then drizzled with olive oil and than baked. It makes a nice starter

I don't care where my garlic comes from as long as it has a few roots on.

The Isle of Wight (not far from here) has an annual garlic festival. I once saw there square garlic. This was elephant garlic which had been grown in a square container thus restricting its growth. It was described as the garlic of the future as it packed together easily for transport.

Exactly pops - that's what I inferred.


We have square garlic all the time - we mince fresh garlic and freeze it in ice cube trays. Hence we can grab an easy supply of ready chopped garlic when cooking.  You have to store it in a clip lock sealed plastic container though - or it stinks the freezer out.
