what a memory you have! i'd love to make it to gilroy one day, but for now the annual hudson valley garlic festival will do. speaking of garlic ice cream, i may just have to give that a try, now that we've broken in our ice cream maker. peconic- we do the roasted garlic on the grill vs oven and it's a nice spread on just about anything. and the other recipes are great as well. keep them coming. thanks!
