Sunflower is back for the third annual Orie’s Garlic Fest, and we can’t wait! This is a fall celebration of all things garlic, with vendors and food makers incorporating all kinds of garlic into their menus. It’s also a cornucopia of the best fall produce and local goods, set in the picturesque Eberly Farms in northwest Wichita. Enjoy a free presentation on how to cook with garlic, let the kids enjoy a hayrack ride, or just kick back a garlic shooter and enjoy the live music.
We’re bringing back our black garlic mocha and black garlic chocolate cake for this special event. What is black garlic, you may ask? It’s a slow-roasted garlic treat that walks the line between sweet and savory. Orie’s describes their home-made black garlic like this:
Black garlic has a sweet and molasses-like flavor that adds a delicious level of complexity to any dish it’s added to. Sprinkle it onto meats, soups and chilis, eggs, hummus, aioli, roasted vegetables and more. It’s also amazing added to desserts like cookies, brownies, or hot chocolate.
Get ready to eat ALL the delicious garlicky foods this weekend, and we’ll see you at the festival on Sunday.
