There is perhaps no better author for a book on garlic than one who grew up on a garlic farm and is also a formidable cook. Garlic: The Mighty Bulb (2012 Firefly Books) is a colourfully illustrated book about the world of garlic and the many ways it can be used around the house and for improved health. Learn about buying, storing, preparing and cooking with the flavourful bulb. Fifty delicious recipes demonstrate how to use garlic in a variety of culinary dishes, including appetizers, salads, entrées, dips, dressings and breads. Here, try a spicy Thai papaya salad (pictured above), beetroot fritters or a creamy squash risotto.
