It might be called ‘the stinking rose,’ but this plant is far from just a smelly sidekick.
Garlic is a household staple; it’s what gives food a delicious aroma, crave-ability, and bite.
And next month, The Toronto Garlic Festival celebrates this year’s local harvest and all its goodness.
- Small Quebec town attempts to make the world’s biggest poutine
- 107 (and counting) of the best patios to check out in Toronto this summer
- IKEA is throwing cheap crayfish buffet parties across Canada this month
The annual event has Ontario farmers and local chefs getting together to cook with garlic, and visitors can taste delicious garlic-themed dishes prepared by chefs and paired with Ontario wine and craft beer.
Admission is $5, while kids under 12 get in for free.
The festival includes live music, film screenings, talks and demos, free garlic shots, and the Garlic Breath Contest.
Just don’t forget to bring mints!
