A Hatred Of Garlic?

At first I though this was a joke, but certain people are looking to get rid of garlic in restaurants in Italy. Read the story here.

Yeah, and I'm circulating a petition to stop the wind from blowing.

Wanna sign?

Ain't gonna happen in our house. We use at least one whole head, maybe more, per week. A day without garlic is like a day without sunshine. Ha! Take THAT Italy!

For what it's worth I use as much garlic as Katie and Buck put together.

. . .

But I'm cooking for myself.

. . .

You don't think there's a connection do you?

The Italians might as well try to ban tomatos. Not going to happen.

Okay...here's the plan. All those in Italy who will be displaced by the garlic ban can come to America. We will love them and take them to Gilroy, California to help soothe them. Long live garlic!!!!

At the country club I worked at up in Michigan, we had a couple members that were "incredibly" allergic to garlic, so they said. They would only come in on Wednesday nights, which was also Family Style night, and 2 weeks out of four, would be Italian, and Chinese, both of which made heavy use of garlic. These two folks would get so upset over the smell of garlic in the air that they would leave. One time, the gentleman started berating me as to why I couldn't make this food back in the kitchen?

They quit coming in after a month or so. Sadly, the gentleman passed away that winter, and his widow only came in once in a while.

I've always wondered if it was one of those things that was all in his head? Most of the food we made had garlic in it.

Heck, just about everything I make at home has some garlic in it somewhere.
