Book review of The Garlic Lover's Cookbook, Volume II, recipes from the Gilroy Garlic Festival, plus free sample garlic recipes.
Each year more than 125,000 garlic lovers flock to the small California town of Gilroy, AKA the garlic capital of the world, for their annual garlic festival, where all things garlic are celebrated (they even serve garlic ice cream!). A big part of the festival is the garlic recipe contest, which garners over 1000 entries from both professional and amateur cooks each year.

This book represents 200 recipes that are the best of the best, chosen by the folks who really know garlic. You'll find lots of classic dishes in this book, with a kicked up garlic attitude (garlic spareribs, garlic tortilla soup, orange garlic pork chops, garlic ravioli, etc.), as well as some novel recipes that will only appeal to the true garlic aficionado (garlic popcorn balls, garlic pancakes, garlic chocolate chip cookies). There's even garlic flavored treats for the family dog!

Scientific research shows that garlic is one of the healthiest foods on the planet, so why not incorporate more of this delicious and health giving ingredient into your family's foods? This book is sure to provide all the inspiration you'll need.

Recipe categories include Appetizers and Snacks; Vegetables, Sides and Savory Pies; Soups, Salads and Dressings; Breads, Pasta and Rice; Meats; Poultry; Seafood; and Miscellaneous Garlic Recipes.
