Evan and I headed to the 33rd Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival today. I love garlic, so of course I was excited! Also the money raised benefits local charities and being a nonprofit employee, I love events like this. :)
Gosh, isn't California gorgeous? I love it here.
Anyway...when I spotted a sign for "roasted corn with garlic butter," I was sold in an instant.
I think roasted corn might be my new favorite thing. Or garlic butter. Yes, I'll go with garlic butter. Dang, that stuff was delicious! :)
There was a Garlic Showdown between four chefs, and Angelo Sosa from Top Chef Season 7 was the MC for the showdown.
I never watched Top Chef when he was on it, so I really wasn't familiar with him. He was a little out of control during the showdown and a little awkward - but it was entertaining nonetheless!
There was a booth handing out free garlic ice cream, but the line was so long...we decided against it. Sounds pretty darn interesting though - maybe next year!
I hope you had a beautiful weekend, friends.
