delicious garlic-inspired recipes for the quintessential garlic lover
"This self-published book is a masterpiece, with world class content, photography,
design and production. Garlic is truly international, very much loved in many countries.
This book deserves to be translated and promoted around the world."
(Edouard Cointreau, President of the Jury -
Gourmand World Cookbook Awards)
Garlic Feast is my first solo book project and holds a special place in my heart. It is a multi-award-winning coffee table cookbook, that sprang from the grassroots of Tasmania’s now iconic Koonya Garlic Festival held on the wild and ruggedly beautiful Tasman Peninsula, in Tasmania’s spectacular south east region.
No-one could have imagined then, that Garlic Feast would go on to win international acclaim, and that our quirky garlic harvest festival event would be celebrated on the world stage. This book would not have been possible without the generosity of the many garlic lovers who took part in the festival and generously shared their recipes for this book.
Garlic is an ingredient unlike any other!
Whether roasted, fried, pickled, fermented, smoked, soy-infused, pureed, poached or confit – garlic has been the cornerstone of cuisines throughout the world since time immemorial. In short, garlic is one of the most indispensable ingredients there is, and for me and many other garlic lovers, it would be inconceivable to contemplate a culinary world without it!
The recipes in Garlic Feast are not only delicious, the majority of them are simple to make - though I have popped in one or two more challenging dishes in the fray to keep aspiring chefs on their garlic tiptoes.
Recipes were gathered from as far afield as New York, London and Sydney - but the majority recipes, were created and shared by talented chefs, artisan producers and passionate garlic lovers from throughout the south-east region of Tasmania who took part in the Koonya Garlic Festival.
But Garlic Feast is so much more than a composite of recipes!
Discover why garlic is so good for you and why ‘black garlic’ is the new super food; Learn how to grow garlic in pots or in your kitchen garden; Unearth the many different varieties of garlic available and their unique flavour profiles; And learn everything you will ever need to know about preserving, fermenting and cooking with garlic!
Garlic Feast is for garlic lovers, aspiring gardeners and passionate home cooks, and all those who love big beautiful coffee table books!
