A World of Garlic
Creamy aioli, hearty spaghetti aglio e olio, spicy chimichurri… all around the world garlic is a key ingredient to a delicious meal. In all corners of the globe, too, garlic farmers have developed their own varieties with unique flavors and colors. Why not grow your own Spanish Roja garlic (perfect for Sopa de Ajo (Spanish Garlic Soup)) side by side with Siberian garlic (and make authentic Russian Piroshki with Vmochanka)? There are two main types of garlic to choose from: hardneck and softneck. Elephant garlic, which is actually a member of the leek family, is a separate type.
