Rosedale’s 3rd Annual Garlic Event proved how much fun you can have when you infuse everything, and everyone, with lots of garlicky goodness.
Many thanks to all who attended and to our generous sponsors for the evening:
The Post Chicken and Beer, Divino Wine & Spirits, Sweet Action Ice Cream, Pajama Baking Company, Trompeau Bakery, Keith’s Coffee Bar, Baity Realty, and Harvard Gulch Golf Course for hosting the event in their clubhouse.
The Post Chicken and Beer provided their wonderful craft brews for the evening, plus amazing Chicken Chicharrones – we’re talking the crispy chicken skin of your dreams with creamy, garlicky hummus on top. The Post Chicken and Beer will open in early December at 2200 Broadway, just a short walk from the garden. Can’t wait!
Divino Wine & Spirits provided our event with specially selected wines to complement the garlic treats. The Lenz Moser Grüner Veltliner Austrian white they chose is my new favorite.
Lots of Rosedale garlic ready for sale.
Carol is ready with lots of gazpacho. Made with vegetables from Rosedale garden and our own Korean Mountain garlic.
Attendees sampling Rosedale garlic. You could try it raw or roasted, and in several garlicky dishes, including roasted garlic butternut squash soup, garlic scape pizza, garlic bread from Pajama Baking Company, and even a specially created garlic ice cream from Sweet Action Ice Cream.
Baskets with Rosedale garlic and garlic-inspired gadgets were the perfect silent auction item to make your own garlic treats at home. Not to mention the more than $200 raised from the silent auction alone. Thanks to everyone who donated and to everyone who bid on the auction items.
Learn all about planting, growing, and harvesting garlic while enjoying garlic scape pizza, and other goodies.
