Garlic, everything, every stand - this is a demand to every exhibitors present at the fair! Stands include garlic jewellery or garments, garlic ices, cheeses, products/farms, oil, pestos/spices, cauldron maize and traditional garlic stalls, all equipped with at least one garlic flavourant! You like garlic? You've come to the right place.
This festival is a marvellous jewel! Once you're in there, there's only one garlic left for everybody! Knoblaucheis is a must. Knoblauch popped corn, garlic hamburger, garlic peanut, garlic vinegar, garlic cold cuts, garlic cowder, garlic chocokeks, it's a great thing if you like garlic.
Also if you don't, there are artisans, grocers a lot, peasants rowing and a lot of samplings. There' s also a lot of different areas of real life and Mr. Garlicman on stilt. Before you buy, there are so many kinds of garlic to try! You' re making it smell like you had 12 garlic onions because you probably will.
It is a beautiful, family-friendly festival that takes place every year on the last week-end in September. My friend was telling me about the garlic festival in the Poconos a few days before and I knew I had to leave. Now you can go down the seemingly never-ending stands with garlic-inspired goods and try most of them.
I' m a jerk and I' ve got some garlic biscuits to take home, not my favourite food I've been eating all morning, but I've had a lot more. My heartbreak was broke when I was informed that they were out of the chocolate-covered garlic clove. I' ve had garlic sausages, garlic spoutine valza, garlic icecream and much more.
The Wikipedia says that there are two large sub-species of garlic, subdivided into ten large groups, further classified into "hundreds of varieties". but I saw a boat load of garlic. Thin, round, lilac, green, round, small, gigantic, big, small.... got it?
Hudson Valley Garlic Festival dates back to 1989, when Pat Reppert (now known as the Garlic Queen) had about a hundred visitors to advertise her new store. Today the festival attracts 50,000 visitors on one week-end. I really loved the festival.
More than fifty garlic growers were selling their Noah's Ark-like selection of garlic, seven groups performing on five different levels, as well as wandering dance and puppet shows, teachers (how to keep garlic) and cookery shows (garlic guacamole) under the awning, hundred stalls, a variety of grocery stores, a jungle gym and a crafting area for the children.
Meal selection definitely had a garlic topic - when I saw shields hooking garlic sandwhiches, garlic poutins (served with a canadian flag ), garlic icecream and icecream, garlic knots, garlic roast pig meat, Sliced garlic bananas, garlic bread and focaccia, garlic bar, garlic jam and spread, garlic on your own burger, garlic riceballs, garlic fries, garlic popped cornfr., garlic maize on the cobs and garlic prawns.
It is a big but not huge festival, so you can see everything in about 4h. I' ve been living in suckers for over 20 years, we didn't just sponsor the garlic festival. The Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in Saugerties, NY, is a meeting place for all garlic enthusiasts.
You can get the many different kinds of garlic from the region's peasants here. The garlic that you can select from includes lilac stripes, china, robots, hard neck, silver skin, artichokes, cream, German cherry and many others. The majority of garlic growers have shredded the garlic so that visitors to the festival can taste it before buying.
If you would like to know more about garlic, the peasants are at your disposal. The new favourite garlic I found at the festival is Obis One's Obis One Garlic. Some time ago I was told about garlic, but I could never really find it in a typical grocery store.
Garlic is ripe and fermenting garlic with carnations. Garlic is as smooth as dry fruits and is ideal for recipies. Garlic from Obi is biological and completely naturally without preservatives. Besides garlic, which you can buy from the growers, there are also grocers and shopkeepers who use garlic in their meals and produce.
You will find the common foodstuffs such as garlic wing, garlic nosts, garlic fries and many kinds of meat in garlic marinade. In a festival like this, I think it is best to try the groceries that seem strange to find garlic as an addition. There are a few things I suggest you try at the festival:
Guido's Frozen Desserts (garlic icecream): Yeah, that's right.... garlic in icecream. Though an uneven combo, it is cremy and has a delicate garlic aroma blended in a custard underside. One can see the little garlic bits in the frost. Guido's also offers garlic icecream, as well as delicious Italien icecream and soft drinks.
Fried garlic candies ("Oliver Kita Pralinen"): Olivier Kita Chocolates offer toasted garlic caramellas that make a soft and soft garlic fudge coated with deep brown praline and seasalt. Garlic is present in the butterscotch, but is overwhelmed by the brown candy. You are also selling other candies and other confectionery items.
Knoblauch udder idea fudge: Even when the pack of forage is opened, there is no doubt that garlic is present, as the powerful flavour meets the nostrils. Don't let them stop you from trying the caramel. Garlic flavour is tempered by the creamy texture of the creamy Fudgeboden. When you don't like the garlic fondant, Euter Ideas Foul has twenty-five other home-made, garlic-free flavours to chose from.
Those interested in the gastronomic side of garlic can enjoy presentations and cookery shows throughout the workday. We were very thrilled to be great gourmets and garlic enthusiasts when we learned about this festival. There was an enormous amount and there are many suppliers who had nothing to do with garlic.
Good things were pricey - $5 for roasted pastry, $5 dollar for a soda pop, $3 for garlic butters' tough corn, etc... When I waited in line for 10 mins to taste garlic jello, I was informed that they were outside but would like to buy me a taste of custard or natella. It' a particularly hard party to have children around.
It' one of the best festival I've ever been to. There is something for everyone - from all types of handicrafts, clothes, music, puppets, eating and especially GARLIC, GARLIC, GARLIC, GARLIC, GARLIC!!!!!! And, yes, I have tried both garlic and garlic icecream - although I like it better, my niche prefers it - it's all a question of flavour.
You got to admit it, they did a great work at this festival. For the third year in a row, and this festival has not failed. We' re garlic lovers, so eating and garlic are big attractions, but they also have tonnes of handicrafts, and speciality foods. This is the right place for you if you like garlic. eating was great, overcrowded, but what do you anticipate! very worthwhile to go and enjoy! so many things with garlic it's great! definitely at the Budhapesto stand, the best all time!
