About The Book
The mighty bulb…
The magic of garlic, for cooking and healing, has been known for generations, since the first civilisations of Mesopotamia. It has been used medicinally for at least 3,000 years and yet, until relatively recently, its benefits were considered little more than folklore. Now, however, its therapeutic powers are proven — described in over 1,000 scientific studies, which detail its 100+ biologically useful chemicals and underline its value in lowering cholesterol, preventing blood clots, reducing blood pressure, fighting cancer and curing everything from athlete’s foot to ear infections.
This is a comprehensive guide to using garlic at home, not just as a staple of the culinary toolkit but in a variety of ways. There is advice on growing your own (the best varieties for health) and how to cultivate and store the plant to maintain its remedial properties. Natasha also demonstrates how to dry and plait garlic into traditional grappes, how to make decongestants and boost the immune system. Plus a whole chapter of recipes celebrates garlic in the kitchen and ensures that, through cooking, its therapeutic benefits are maintained.
Author Biography: Natasha Edwards grew up surrounded by garlic on the world-renowned garlic farm on the Isle of Wight run by her father, Colin Boswell, and she draws on her own knowledge and experience of cooking, eating and using garlic as a remedy.
