If you haven’t heard, Central Market is in the thick of their Garlic Fest. You can partake in this storewide salute of garlic with over a dozen rare and exotic varieties of garlic butters, hummus, rubs, dressings and desserts available!
There will also be cooking classes and other fun in-store activities offered thru September 29 at your local Central Market.
In the meantime, enjoy this aromatic Garlic Mussels Provençal with Toast [above], as adapted from the 2015 Gilroy Garlic Festival Cook-off… 🙂
One variety CM will be highlighting in particular is the Black Garlic. It has a softer, sweeter taste than regular garlic, and is great raw or cooked. Try this recipe for sweet and tangy Black Garlic Butter Wings from Stephen Paprocki, chef/owner of Texas Black Gold Garlic in San Antonio:
