Roast garlic

Garlic is one of my all time favourite things to cook with and roasted is probably the most delicious way to do it. My friend Kirstin taught me how to cook garlic this way, I come from a family of non-garlic lovers so my experience with this yummy stuff was limited until I was in university… We were in the same photography class and Kirstin happened to be assisting one of Cape Towns hot-shot fashion photographers at the time, which meant she had access to all of her equipment whenever she needed. We would create elaborate studio set-ups in her living room and shoot until the early hours of the morning, and Kirstin would make roast chicken with garlic and we would drink too much red wine… good times…

There are a million things you can do with the garlic once its roasted, make garlic butter, mix with mayonnaise, add it to anything that calls for garlic in the recipe, but the easiest, and my favourite way, is to just mash it up with a bit of salt and spread it on a thick slice of fresh bread. Yum.
