Natasha Edwards looks to put garlic centre stage in Garlic: The Mighty Bulb, while Metro makes a garlic and tomato tarte tatin and an Asian fish parcel from the recipe book. Some people know their onions; Natasha Edwards knows her garlic. She was raised on her parents’ garlic farm on the Isle of Wight and tells how it was first grown on the island to cater for the tastes of units of the Free French Forces, who were based there during World War II. Years later, inspired by cookery writer Elizabeth David, her grandmother started growing it and the family farm’s first garlic crop was harvested in 1977.

Talk about Garlic: The Mighty Bulb

This book has wonderful recipes with great, appetizing photos for items such as garlic zucchini fitters, garlic pesto, Greek tzatziki sauce, immune-building soup, Moroccan dressing, and marinated fish ceviche. My personal "favorites" are about its' safety, finding out how to grow it, and if you're daring, make your own garlic braid from scratch. All, an entertaining read!
A well written and very informative book about an essential food that can spice up your life & help make you healthier. "Garlic: The Mighty Bulb" is a must read and an important part of anyones library.
I've already read this book twice & have lent it out to several friends. We've all learned great info from the book.
Charming, informational and covers history of garlic, medical applications, and culinary ideas. Great recipes, too! It's an important part of my garlic reference section.
I would like to say I loved the book, but most of the print was so small I couldn't read it, even with my powerful reading glasses. It looks like a nice book? Not everyone is myopic.
This book attracted me because as an herbalist, garlic is one of the main remedies in my repetoir. "Garlic the Mighty Bulb" is richly illustrated with beautiful pictures throughout and a good format. It contains information on cooking, growing and healing with garlic. The book contains information on the history of garlic, cooking with garlic, health and remedies varieties of garlic and growing garlic. There is a culinary section with some recipes but there are also sections on other aspects of garlic and I would not call this a cookbook.

I was particularly drawn to the section on health and remedies. This section gives a discussion of the history and folklore of garlic, and discusses the use of garlic as medicine in modern times. There is discussion on the daily dose of garlic and the safety of garlic. It discusses garlic tablets and capsuels as an alternative to eating it raw with the idea of avoiding the odor. There is a discussion of antidotes to garlic odors. There is a good section on garlic remedies with everything from garlic oil to warm garlic milk.

There is a section called "The beauty of garlic" which covers the value of garlic in today's world. The cultivation of garlic is discussed and the classification of garlic, varieties of garlic and related plants, how to grow garlic and how to braid garlic. I found this book to be quite comprehensive and full of useful knowledge. I recommend it to anyone interested in garlic and both the culilnary and medicinal properties of the plant. -- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healthy Teas
This summer I met a garlic seller at a local food market. He taught me that there was more to the garlic than the bulbs at the grocery store; and I wanted to learn more. Garlic: The Mighty Bulb was brought to my attention as a recommendation in a national food magazine. I researched a bit; it seemed like a good place to start my education. The book is rich with pictures, history: medicinal, mythical, regional, and personal anecdotes. While it does contain recipes, it is not a book of recipes. The book has provided enjoyable, informative reading and a few new recipes for my kitchen!
I love garlic! Already made a few recipes. Looking forward to doing more. Will plan a trip down to the garlic farm too!
