Looks like you are standing under the food-gardeners' version of mistletoe.... just waiting to impress a passing garlic-lover!

I asked the same question... elephant garlic?? and the guy said nonononono.. good garlic grown with sea weed in the compost. The biggest bulb that I have ever seen, similar size to elephant garlic.  

This week, garlic confit and then alioli.

Are you saying good garlic can be grown using seaweed?  Or basil.  I cannot for the life of me grow garlic beyond marble size bulbs.  Are those elephant garlic or bog standard?  Totally impressive either way :)

Pistou is very similar to Pesto, but the difference is that for Pistou we use Basil , garlic and olive oil. You can create your variations with other herbs and some people add nuts or cheese but, in my opinion it then becomes Pesto.

I use 5 plants of basil, around 400 gr and add 4 cloves of garlic, put everything in the food processor and add olive oil until it gets to a smooth consistency. At the end it is going to have a very garlic flavour but, no worries, if you mix it in a hot soup, sauce or hot cheese sandwich..mmmmm the garlic flavor is going to be smooth.

Would you have time to share your Pistou recipe?

Pistou, We have beautiful basil from My Garden and yesterday we have those garlic delivered to the restaurant from a local farm... The secret is seaweed in the compost!
