The Gilroy Garlic Festival is one of the most popular food festivals in country drawing tens of thousands of guests over three fun-filled days. Our favorite part of the festival – the Gilroy Garlic Fries, of course! In Idaho we love everything that pairs well with potatoes and garlic is at the top of the list. The Idaho Potato Commission has an impressive collection of recipes that feature garlic in a variety of ways… garlic oil…garlic cloves…garlic paste… So take a deep breath and proceed at your own risk. Here are a few examples of some extraordinary garlic and potato match-ups.
