Every December I visit the Christmas Markets with my mum and a couple of years ago we came across what is possibly the best gadget I have ever used in the kitchen. We promptly snapped one up for ourselves and a couple as Christmas presents.
Can you tell what it is yet? I'll give you a clue, you can use it with garlic like this.....
Yep its a grater - you dampen the plate a little, rub the garlic over the little spiky bits and you are left with a lovely little pile of finely grated garlic which adds loads of flavour to your dishes. You then add any little bits left over to a bottle of oil to create a lovely garlic infused oil.
Take the brush and use it to get all the garlic into a little pile at the side of the plate making it easy to add to your food. No more fiddling about chopping garlic into small pieces or using a crusher that wastes half of your garlic clove!
