Event: Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That! (15Oct2007)

Event announcement:
Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That!

Danielle (Habeas Brülée) received the following comment after posting about her Stuffed Grape Leaves made with garlic and hazelnuts: “I like to draw a line on the number of things you can pair with garlic and make these pairings successful. Peaches and garlic — no! Hazelnuts and garlic — no!

So many rules!! And as we all know, rules are made to be broken. So Danielle has announced a one-time-only event to dispel the notion that garlic cannot be eaten with [____]. Here is what she wrote:

[P]airing garlic with hazelnut [is] a flavor combination that thrills me to no end […] which I adore with all the adorings I’ve got. I’ve never tried garlic with peaches, but I bet I could make a pretty good barbecue sauce with the two of them together, at least. […]

To participate in Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That!, all you have to do is cook a dish that pairs garlic with something it’s not usually paired with. I have a really strong preference for seeing garlic/hazelnut dishes, but any unusual garlic pairing is fair game. Have fun with this!

The deadline for Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That! is Monday 8 October, 2007.

edit 9 October 2007:
Newsflash!! Because of time constraints, Danielle has changed the deadline to next Monday, 15 October 2007.
