Garlic Harvest party fun for all
NIEU-BETHESDA — Barman Boetie's garlic was harvested recently, and people from far and near gathered at 'Die Ramstal' pub last Friday to once again celebrate this odorous bulb.
Rustic tables were laden to capacity with exceptionally creative dishes - all containing Boetie's garlic which he had made available during the week. Victoria and Leeanne carefully plated platters of vegan garlic sushi while muffin trays filled with snails swimming in garlicy butter were soaked up with fingers of fresh white bread.
Garlic and asparagus tarts, peanut caramel coated cloves, garlicy chicken liver pate, garlic pasta salad and even garlic infused chocolate muffins were all the order of the day! The feast continued well into the night as people continued to arrive - each time with a fascinating, beautifully aromatic plate of food.
The village dogs gambolled underfoot, licking up fallen scraps, and a jovial atmosphere filled this character-filled pub. Guests spilt outside onto the lawn overlooking the Gats riverbed and the nearly full moon rose above this tiny little village where great things happen!
