National Garlic Day is a day when garlic is celebrated with greater appreciation than ever!

Garlic is one of the most important flavoring bulbs known to man. The origins of wild garlic can be traced back to Central Asia over 5000 years ago. Although garlic is now a major part of Mediterranean cuisine today, it was not a popular ingredient in ancient Rome’s cooking. However, soldiers used it to boost their courage.

People from the Medieval and Renaissance eras were the first to use garlic in cooking. Because it is technically a root that was dug from the ground, it was not used in large quantities in sauces. Culinary chefs first began to recognize garlic in the late 19th century.

Garlic can now be found in many different cuisines. It is believed that American food critics like James Beard or Craig Claiborne promoted garlic in the 20th century.

Garlic is also well-known for its miraculous and healing properties. These properties include the ability to repel demons, vampires, and werewolves. However, this could also mean that garlic can cause bad breath.

Garlic is not only magical, but it also has herbal medicinal properties that can lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

There are many garlic festivals today, as garlic is used in many different dishes around the globe.
