Chef’s Choice: Fermented Black Garlic

Executive Chef Anthony Dawodu has shared a very interesting project he has been working on. For 40 days Chef slowly cooked Black Garlic in an oven between 140-155 Degrees. See the images below!

The end result is a very sweet and dark finish with hints of tamarind it is also very rich in antioxidants. He uses this type of garlic at the Turtle Bay Estate House for Pasta as well as a delicious black garlic and Cabernet demi-glace. To view the Turtle Bay Estate House Menu click here.

Tip: Chef uses this type of fermented black garlic in his milk shakes or smoothies due to the high levels of antioxidants.

The next project Chef is working on will be making black garlic powder!
