Oh My Garlic: The Garlic & Harvest Festival

(Video link)

I got my fill and then some of beloved garlic today at the Garlic & Harvest Festival in Bethlehem, CT.

Garlic ice cream … garlic pickles … whole roasted garlic cloves …garlic vinegar … garlic pesto … garlic cannoli…. Yes, you heard that right: garlic cannoli.

I loved her garlic earrings and garlic wand, not to mention her garlic outfit and garlic hat

I didn’t care for the garlic ice cream, but one of my favorite things was actually the garlic cannoli. All the sweet, creamy, and crispy goodness of a regular cannoli, touched with a subtle savory hint of garlic.

It was fun to walk around at this celebration of all things garlic.

I experimented with interviewing people for the above video.

Editing the video, I quickly spotted my weakness as an on-camera commentator.

My only description of the food was the comment, “That’s garlicky!” (But, yes, it was garlicky.)

What’s your favorite garlicky food?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAP.S. I also completed a mini-challenge to interview some strangers and hand them my new blog business card. I felt more shy than I imagined I would be, but still managed to interview some people.

    I love roasted garlic and with fall showing it’s colors I’m craving squash soup with roasted garlic.

    Garlic pesto? YES! Garlic pickles? YES! Garlic cannolis? Um….not so sure. (I don’t love cannolis to begin with.) Did you invest in breath mints before attending???

    Oh my gosh, this sounds so wonderful. I cannot get enough garlic, ever. But garlic ice cream? That seems like a bit of a stretch, even for me.

    I love the OMG (Oh My Garlic) spices that you showed! I usually take the bottle out and say “Oh My Good” but from now on I’ll just stick to “that’s garlicky!!” Nice video, looks like a beautiful day and a fun time!!

      I need to work on my commentary. I’ll never get a show on the Food Network at this rate. Everything was really garlicky, though!

    Oh my goodness ALL THAT GARLIC. I am intrigued by the mini challenge and will check it out! My fave garlic is roasted garlic, slathered on french bread with butter. Yummy Yum Yum.

      I am still so shy at heart that I did find that difficult. It was a lot easier, though, to give them a card instead of trying to explain the name of my blog and how to find it. Thanks!
