Garlic is the Lord Byron of produce, a lusty rogue that charms and seduces you, but runs off before dawn leaving a bad taste in your mouth. Called everything from "rustic cure-all" to "Russian penicillin," "Bronx vanilla," and "Italian perfume," garlic has been loved, worshiped, and despised throughout history. While this book does not claim that garlic saved civilization, it will take you on a grand tour of garlic's fascinating role in history, medicine, literature, and art; its controversial role in bigotry, mythology, and superstition; and its indispensable contribution to the great cuisines of the world.
