I found several links on the subject. One said it was browned in olive oil then splashed with wine to exploded it. The other two just said it was fried (not browned) in olive oil until it exploded. This left it with the texture of a potato and a much milder smoother garlic flavor. In those cases, the people were actually eating them that way, not mixing them into anything.
So maybe the trick is not to saute them but to fry them in deeper oil. It also said a whole clove and did not mention peeling it or anything.
Interesting stuff, where is IronChef?? Betcha he knows!

Never heard of exploding garlic, but I did have a baked potato explode in my oven this weekend. Did not put the holes in it, after I thought about it, I did not think it was necessary. WRONG! This has never happened before. Not as bad as an exploding scramled egg in the microware, but close.

This sounds more like the "angry garlic" I was introduced to by the chef catering my nephews wedding reception in Mendocino CA last september, and no one here had heard of angry garlic either. The angry garlic was used as an ingredient in another dish.

I have reason to doubt the author also. WHo browns a bay leaf? It would get bitter that way.
