3 delicious recipes that pack a garlicky punch

Health benefits and vampire wards are great, but most importantly, garlic is an easy way to make simple dishes pop.

Beyond its pungent aroma, garlic, "the stinking rose" has a powerful reputation. There are health claims and folklore, but as an integral ingredient in dishes around the world, garlic is a culinary champion.

Local farmers, foodies and chefs came together earlier this fall celebrating all things garlic at Toronto's second annual Garlic Festival. I went because I want to grow garlic next year and needed tips on the best growing practices. Mission accomplished, I have five different types to grow. Plus I got to sample some wonderful garlic-infused dishes that are sure to keep the vampires away.
