From ancient Greek lore to vampire movies and modern medicine, what other herb invokes such strong feelings in people as allium sativum?better known as garlic? Most people know garlic can season food and may even protect from evil spirits but they may not know it can cure colds, attract lovers, and sweeten luck?until now. A Miscellany of Garlic reveals all of the splendors of this amazing plant, including:

  • to keep them safe and strong, Egyptian slaves chewed on garlic while building the pyramids
  • eating garlic can help repair lung damage caused by smoking
  • Tibetan monks were banned from eating garlic?due to its reputation as an aphrodisiac
  • large quantities of raw garlic can prevent roundworm and other parasites
  • and a mixture of crushed garlic and water can rid roses of aphids
Packed with hundreds of aromatic facts, trivia, and quick-to-table recipes, A Miscellany of Garlic is an homage to the savory herb no garlic lover can resist.

At the age of twenty-five, Trina Clickner created and marketed the first gourmet garlic and cheese dog biscuit. She was spurred to do this because she grew up in a Greek family with garlic galore. She is the creator of www.foodhistorian.com, an effort to encourage families to preserve original handwritten recipes as a way to stay in touch with their family history and heritage. In 1998 she launched PocketChef, an innovative PalmPilot app that includes original and chef-created recipes. She lives in Florida, and feels that there's no such thing in any meal as "too much garlic."
