As a chef, I can attest to the versatility and flavor-enhancing properties of garlic. It is a staple ingredient in many cuisines around the world and can be used in a variety of dishes, from appetizers to entrees to desserts. In this article, I will be sharing 10 of my favorite garlic-based recipes that are sure to add delicious flavor to any meal.
