This dish is pot licking delicious!
For years, I've read recipes about roasting all kinds of fowl with forty coves of garlic. Knowing that garlic mellows as it roasts didn't convince me that forty cloves would be pleasant to eat. It sounded more like a tonic to ward off vampires!

Obviously from the title of my post, you know that curiosity killed this cat. Logic dictates that there can't be the plethora of recipes out there for a nasty tasting dish. Logic was bang on.
