'Blue Garlic'. The two paintings could be hung together...
I am sure that most of you have tried roasting garlic bulbs in the oven which changes their flavour into a rich, almost nutty taste. There are many recipes for this but basically you take the whole bulb and slice off about 1/4 of an inch across the top (to expose the flesh of each clove), drizzle a tsp. of olive oil over each bulb, place them on a piece of tin foil and bring up the foil on all sides and fold over all the edges to seal (like a closed tent), you can also place them in a small oven proof dish covered with a lid. Bake at about 375 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. They are done when the individual cloves are browned and soft.
I like to give each guest their very own bulb on a plate with buttered gourmet bread and some brie cheese. Then it is only a matter of squeezing out a clove, spreading it on a piece of the bread and if you like, add a thin slice of the cheese.
