Does roasted garlic really not make you smell?

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by gorgybaby, Sep 4, 2011.

  1. I am paranoid about being stinky especially on a school day. Sophie Dahl was on telly on Fri morning with a recipe for tom soup which I want to have a go at. It involves roasted garlic, and I know I have heard tell that when roasted it really doesn't smell. However,people who eat a lot of garlic seem oblivious about the smell or just take it on the chin. What do you think? Shall I take the chance today?? Or leave it until the weekend, when I can breathe over Mr Gorgy with impunity?

    Roasted garlic does make you smell. A different sort of smell, maybe, but it still makes you smell. We recently ate the famed 'chicken with forty cloves of garlic', in which the roasted garlic is eaten as a side veg. You could smell it in every pore of our skin the next day.
    I have to say though, I couldn't give a b.ugger if I smell of garlic.
     
  4. OMG Nick, I can smell you from here! Shame really - it is roasting as we speak! Thanks for your response. I have only put about 4 cloves in the pan though - I am such a lightweight.
