This was a great experience – a place for the whole family. Everywhere you looked there were opportunities to taste garlic, learn from presenters about its history or how to use it or how to plant it in your garden.”

City people’s interest in their food and where it comes from is palpable. They hunger for the country and the soil. I can’t think of a better food than garlic around which to centre a festival and draw people. It celebrates the diversity of a particular genus and how important it is to preserve the diversity of all food."
