Although it may seem a new concept, garlic was in fact introduced to Britain by the Romans and has been a cook’s staple for millennia. The bulbous vegetable was praised in ancient Sanskrit writings, the Egyptians buried it with their dead and by 1500BC it had spread across the world – it even turned up in the medieval court of Richard II. But by the 19th century, Mrs Beeton was describing it as ‘offensive’ and for most of the 20th century you barely caught a whiff of it in the domestic kitchen.
Cheap flights and package holidays changed our perceptions, and Britain soon rediscovered garlic’s 'pungent' charms, using it in everything from curries to casseroles, stir-fries and soups. Coupled with a renewed thirst for traceable, local produce, British-grown garlic is set to become a great household favourite.
