The two Frenchmen...
... but that much raw garlic?


hey...they're French. What did you expect?
 
2012-09-15 12:55:25 PM  
Pickled garlic is awesome. Raw? That's kinda crazy
 
2012-09-15 12:59:06 PM  
Just...wow.

That guy is going to have a serious burn in his stomach...on top of the hangover heaves.
Alliums'll do that to ya...


I dehydrate onions for later use...they come out sweet and crispy. Mmmmm, delicious...
until about the five minutes into munch-munch mode. Your stomach wakes up and says "What the fark are you tryin' to DO to me?"

The French have nothing on people from Northeast Asia.

Aside from the cultural "tastes great" aspect, there's also Orwell's observation that eating raw garlic is a great way to remind yourself you're not starving.

That took a lot of gall.

drtfa, but anything in that kind of absurd quantity can't be good for you.

What is this, some kind of new age garlic "purification" self-hating ritual?

When I was in 2nd grade, on cold winter days, I believed that eating a clove or 2 or 3 of raw garlic on my walk to school would make me warmer.

That lasted until my teacher called up my mother about my breath and asked what the hell was going on.
 
2012-09-15 01:08:12 PM  
I would eat that much cooked garlic no problem. Raw, not so much.

A subway or bus full of people on a hot day likely to eat raw garlic is pretty distinctive.

Francais explains so much. Like onions, even raw; never had raw garlic. Maybe need to try sometime, in less than gargantuan quantity.

Love garlic on my pizza.

I used to eat raw garlic until a girl I liked told me I smelled like garlic. Now I smell like beer.

This makes ye olde insult "I fart in your general direction" into a serious threat.

Worked with a guy who took garlic pills three times a day. Couldnt stand to be around the guy; this made it worse. Smell oozed from his every pore as we worked a physical job in the summer...

2012-09-15 01:37:21 PM  
Now wait until the Guy sobers up and fires off a three-ring-coil consisting entirely of garlic, onions, and lobster. I imagine that the sweat off of Satan's balls would smell like lavender in comparison
 
2012-09-15 01:43:01 PM  
I understand eating a single dick- but AN ENTIRE BAG??
 
2012-09-15 01:49:51 PM  
At last! Garlic fart! The perfect attack to train my Groudon with.

Before being told to leave, Alvany was billed for a lobster dinner, which goes for just a little over $30.

Sounds very inexpensive for a decent lobster dinner. Do they deliver?

One of the things I loved about Candlestick Park was the 40-clove chicken sandwich from The Stinking Rose. Out of courtesy, I'd buy three; one for my seat mates, so I was still welcome to sit there.

/soo good!

Oh he'll be pure all right...about 6-12 hours after eating.

Because garlic is Farking delicious, subby.

I'm hungover right now. Reading that article I suddenly feel a whole lot better. Can't imagine what that dude is going through right now.

Difficult to understand?

Gluttonous and rude?

Can eat a cup and a half of garlic without flinching?

Gentlemen, I present to you my first suspect.
 
2012-09-15 03:11:22 PM  
CSB, one time my now-ex-husband and I went to a local pizza joint and he got an individual pizza with "garlic" as a topping. It came out with entire cloves of garlic tossed on like they were olives or something. And he ate it, about 3/4 of it in one sitting, and declared it amazing.

For the next three days he reeked. When a person sweats garlic out their pores they do NOT smell like fresh garlic. They smell like rotten garlic eggs mixed with whatever sweaty smell they ordinarily have. I couldn't sit within six feet of him it was that strong. Even one minute out of the shower he stank.

/that's not why we're divorced

Mark Bittman has a really good recipe for scallion dipping sauce...it has about 2 handfuls of raw garlic, bunch of scallions, I think ginger, and peanut oil that is heated up a bit to take the edge off the garlic (but it's still raw) - blend in a food processor with a fair amount of salt.

It is potent and delicious, and a really pretty shade of green. I usually make it to have with his pot-stickers.

Roasted garlic spread over bread with a drizzle of olive oil. Mmmmmmmm!
 
2012-09-15 04:28:14 PM  
When I was younger, I ate a whole clove of raw garlic. I can't even explain how bad the taste is. You know that bitterant they put in canned air and you accidentally lick your fingers or something after using it? Garlic is 50X worse. (and no, I never intentionally huffed anything). It took HOURS for the taste in my mouth to go away. Mouthwash, toothpaste, mints, milk, nothing took away the aftertaste.

\Also tried doing a "shot" of lemon extract around the same timeframe...

TV's Vinnie: Roasted garlic spread over bread with a drizzle of olive oil. Mmmmmmmm!


an other nice option: scrub hard fresh garlic on the bread, add a few drops of olive oil, bake the bread loafs until light crispy then top it with fresh square cut tomatoes.
Works even better with 2 days old bread !

I could go for some garlic-stuffed olives right now.

I like raw garlic but if I eat too much it peels skin off the inside of my mouth.
If you just swallowed without chewing it probably wouldn't do much though.

AnEvilGuest: I like raw garlic but if I eat too much it peels skin off the inside of my mouth.

You'd still smell like garlic for hours afterward. And maybe 24 hours later, it would burn your lower intestine.

At BBQs, I will soak a garlic bulb (Elephant garlic is best for this) for about 30 minutes, then just place it at the far back corner of my grill. It's done when the cloves are soft. Peel and slice the cloves and sprinkle with sea salt. I can (usually) get everyone at the event to take a bite, if only for self defense.

/loves the garlic
//hates Monday meetings, so Sunday dinner has lots of garlic

True but Asian garlic is very mild compared to American garlic. Same with the onions.

Ahh...you got the trick!
If the person with you also consumes garlic or onions, then they don't smell them on you!

/ roasted or pickled garlic...yum!

The cinnamon challenge was pretty funny

Yeah, this is this guy's little slice of Internet fame: eat stuff that no normal person would eat. The ghost pepper challenge is also worth watching, and raw tripe is also pretty good, if just for the sound of him trying to chew it. "Hyeaaah, so dis stuff is tough ovah heeeah!"

Has anyone here ever tried using ghost peppers in any sort of normal meal? On a recent trip to Chicago, I found a supermarket that sells fresh ghost peppers and briefly considered bringing some home to experiment with (maybe make a blazing hot macaroni and cheese), but then I worried that the TSA might consider them chemical weapons.

I'm still kind of curious to experiment with them, but thus far I haven't found any place in or around San Jose that sells them.

You can add them just for the heat or cut out the membrane and maybe get a hint of their flavor. Yes, the membrane that holds the seeds is where the heat actually comes from, not the seeds. Although, the seeds are coated in it. Wear gloves.

/I just heard Gordon F'ing Ramsey repeat the whole seeds myth so...
