Just a few public services announcements related to food:
I was always skeptical of garlic presses. I think the first one that I bought bent after one use. And barely pressed any garlic. And an old roommate taught me some easy tricks for chopping garlic. So I wrote off garlic presses as an unnecessary kitchen tool. Until… my amazing friend Krista gifted me with the Pampered Chef garlic press as a holiday present. I can now hardly imagine cooking with garlic before having this gadget. It is sturdy, easy to clean and just plain awesome.
