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!
