I've seen the Food Network special on the garlic festival they have in Gilroy, and they do serve garlic flavored ice cream.

Actually, Connie, our daughter lives in Los Angeles and eats at a restaurant called The Stinking Rose, which is a garlic specialty place. She reports that the garlic ice cream is quite tasty. Not garlicky at all.

I've been to the Stinking Rose restaurant in San Francisco.

Yep, Andy. She used to live in San Fran, too, and that's where she first ate at the restaurant. Said the one in L.A. was good, but not as good as the one in San Francisco.

Katie, I'll try almost anything once.

I had to look at that first raw oyster a long while before I had the nerve to pop it in my mouth. I was immediately hooked...love'em!

Despite the continuing Gilroy Garlic Festival, the garlic industry there is not what it once was, thanks largely to cheap Chinese imports and to the outrageous price of land that close to the Bay Area (i.e., what used to be garlic fields is now tract homes).

In any case, I love garlic, use about a head per week, and I distrust anyone who doesn't like the stinking rose. BUT, like all good things, it can be overdone. I shake my head at the "kick it up a notch" crowd who dump handfuls of garlic in everything they make. It has no place in ice cream or smoothies, and too much can overpower even a hearty stew or sauce. Use the tastebuds God gave you when you cook, not some juvenile sense of "OMG!"

BTW, my grandfather was born in Gilroy in 1877.
