.Gilroy Garlic Festival Returns

The annual Gilroy Garlic Festival returns in modified form this year with three separate events centering around the highly aromatic herb. First is the famous Gourmet Alley, where hungry non-vampires can consume a cornucopia of garlicky classics. This year’s Alley is more alley-like than ever in that it is a drive-thru event. Saturday night’s farm-to-table dinner at Fortino Winery meanwhile is a more upscale affair: a four-course meal sourced from local ingredients, paired with local wines and, of course, cooked with local garlic. Then the following weekend at Gilroy Golf Course, there’s the Garlic Festival Golf Classic, where everybody stinks on the course.
