Garlic....yuk

Am I the only one here that doesn't like garlic? I don't like the smell of it or the taste of it.

I don't like it either, Elaine. Do you like onions?

I do like onions. I feel like everything now has so much garlic in it that it takes over the flavor of everything. I guess that is why I like to make my own meals!

I don't like onions but I cook with them now because they do add a flavor and aroma to meals that my family loves. But garlic? Just like you, Elaine, I can't taste or smell anything else when there is garlic in a food.

I have Asian blood so I have to like garlic. No choice... :p
As far as onions go I have to have sliced raw onions on my burgers or they ain't burgers.

We go through 1 to 2 heads of garlic per week. It's essential in Italian, French, Mexican, Greek, Chinese, Thai, Indian, BBQ, and just about every other main dish, side dish, soup, or casserole I make. And if a recipe calls for 2 cloves, I use 3.

Love garlic, and it's good for the heart, too!

As for onions, I probably use an average or 3 or 4 per week. I can't imagine cooking without it. Why would anyone want to eat a hamburger or taco without raw onions?

I am Italian but I don't use it, well sometimes when cooking for others and the recipe calls for it. I don't even own a "bulb" of the wretched stuff!

I can't believe this post is in a cooking forum.

I'll bet the only cuisines that don't use garlic are Scandinavian and Eskimo.
