So near the beginning of this blog's birth we said we wanted to try black garlic. Thanks to our awesome friend Kasia, we were able to get our hands on some!
We made a black garlic tapenade - completely eyeballed and not measured in this case - with black olives, capers, black garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and a bit of salt. It was AWESOME spread atop some lightly-toasted french bread.
Black garlic tastes almost balsamic-y - definitely sweeter than regular garlic - and it is, in fact, black. Squishy too - you have to be careful not to squish it whilst peeling the skin off around it.
I still have another bulb of black garlic here... then once I've used that I can truly say our black garlic mission has been completed! Yours in food, -Stacey
On an imported slab of heat-retention stone from Australia, you cook your own meal. Looks like fun! However it might be more about the experience than anything else - we heard some not-so-good reviews from a friend recently. We'll try anything once though!
¤Kultura (King East - Furniture District) Heard a lot about Roger Mooking's restaurants - think we're more obsessed with going there because of the fact that he used to be in Bass is Base!
¤ Cafe Gilead (King East - Furniture District) Jamie Kennedy's stuff is usually pretty good so we want to try it. ¤ Guu (Church St - The Gaybourhood) This place is trendy, so some people go there for that reason alone, but we'd be heading there to see what "Japanese tapas" is all about.
