So European. Hang a string of garlic and other cooking delights in your kitchen for an aesthetic and handy utensil.
I've always wanted one for my kitchen and you can imagine my delight when I found a little deli on a back street that sold them. However they cost £30 so I went to the supermarket and spent no more than £3 on ingredients and materials and made one myself.
