Phipps Conservatory Garlic Collection

My final summer project is now documented at last - here is the collection of garlic gathered from various growers at the Phipps Conservatory "Red, Ripe and Roasted: Garlic and Tomato Festival" 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA. (Plus three additional garlics I tucked in!)

Each year Phipps host many wonderful events - their annual "Red, Ripe and Roasted: Garlic and Tomato Festival" was a place I found quite appropriate for me this summer! :o)

What fun and OH MY - what a magnificent place to explore!

Eating Well: Chipotle Beef Potato Salad - OMG w/or w/out tortillas

I suddenly remembered this easy recipe with a spicy kick - great on the side, as a main dish, or wrapped in a warm tortilla.

Stew meat, diced potatoes, diced chipotles, diced red onion tossed with fresh avocado slices and lime juice.

It's probably poverty food but call me a VERY big fan of this basic, mouth-watering beef and potato delight!

Phipps Conservatory's 8th annual Tomato & Garlic festival: Red, Ripe & Roasted

If you're in or around Pittsburgh, PA on August 26th 2012, treat yourself to a delightful day at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. This year is the 8th annual tomato and garlic festival, featuring two of the season's tastiest crops.

Each year, Phipps gathers the greater Pittsburgh community together to celebrate the bounty of summer and offers tastings, cooking demos, a farmers' market, kids' activities, and more! I'm speaking 11:00 to 12:00 right there on their historic and sustainably managed front lawn!

For details see: http://phipps.conservatory.org/exhibits-and-events/featured-event.aspx?e...

If you bring a donation for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank you'll receive free admission.

Safety Harbor, FL Garlic Talk - The Best of Them All!

Thanks to the exceptional staff at the Safety Harbor Public Library in Safety Harbor Florida, on August 9th, 2012, we enjoyed a wonderful evening complete with home made garlic ice cream, garlic brittle cookies, lemon hummus and a BIG crowd of garlic enthusiasts.

I dare say it was the best garlic talk yet. We set up a quiz station, a garlic curiosities station complete with magnifying glass, a history/timeline station, a book signing station, a display station that featured my garlic "altered book" along side garlic from Fox Run on display, and the snack bar, of course!

Thank you everyone and special thanks to GINA for getting the great publicity that resulted in a fantastic turnout and a super evening for all! Here are links to Gina's culinary contributions as well!
