Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

Garlice is as Good as Ten Mothers (1980)

This is Les Blank's (www.lesblank.com) most gastronomically obsessional film portrait yet. An exhaustive, lip-smacking foray into the history, consumption, cultivation, and culinary and curative powers of allium sativum, the film lingers in the disparate kitchens of Chez Panisse and Flint's Bar-B-Que in Berkeley, and Truckee's paradise for lovers of the stinking rose, La Vieille Maison. There's a piquant stop at the first Gilroy Garlic Festival, pertinent asides by Werner "I'll eat my shoe" Herzog, and performances of Cajun, French Provincial, Flamenco, Swiss Italian, Moroccan and Mexican music." --Robert DiMatteo, San Francisco Bay Guardian
