Garlike

Don Quixote warned his faithful companion Sancho Panza against eating garlic because his breath would betray him as a lowly farmer. But Sancho didn’t listen and neither did anybody else. (The Don was, after all, a little off his rocker.) Today, garlic is a foundation of the Mediterranean diet.

    Wow, can she make s living off that? It’s a pretty specific niche she’s cornered there!

    Sir, what garlic would you like in your chicken?……wow! it´s a pretty swell stall.

    Your post is very apropos since I have to make a first course based on garlic and I am looking for something relatively unusual.
    Is there a garlic soup recipe typical of Spain? Unfortunately I can’t visit the garlic lady for suggestions.
    I read in an article that shepherds cook something like that with very basic ingredients. Can you help and is it worth it. It will also be nice to have some insight.

    THANKS!
