Here's how you know that you're definitely not a vampire: 

  • You start off every meal by sliding a hefty pile of minced garlic into a sauté pan full of sizzling olive oil.
  • There's no feeling more gratifying than when a garlic clove's skin comes off with one valiant smash of your knife. 
  • You don't consider a piece of toasted bread "toast" or "crostini" unless its every crevice is rubbed with garlic. 
  • You actually enjoy the fact that your fingertips smell of garlic when you go to bed after a long day of mincing, and you've never understood why garlic breath has a negative connotation. 
  • Dishes with subtle hints of garlic -- like Linguine con Vongole and Mussels Dijonnaise -- are great, but dishes that make garlic the star are even better. 

We've rounded up 13 dishes that feature garlic in all its different temperaments: sharp, pungent, mellow, tangy, and sweet. All you garlic fiends out there, this is for you.

I love marinating flank steak in garlic and olive oil overnight before grilling. Even better with some sweetcorn and olive oil mash. Here's the recipe www.timedeating.co.uk/olive...
