• English: Smoked garlic of Arleux

Arleux is a tiny village in the north of France with a huge reputation for being the smoked garlic capital of the world. While locals claim the tradition of smoking garlic to preserve and commercialize them dates from Roman times, the actual record of the practice dates from 16th century, which still gives it a long history.

Smoked garlic gives a smoky taste to your dishes and the smoking naturally augments the garlic’s pungent smell and taste. You can use them for all recipes that use garlic, such as garlic bread and a good pot-au-feu. In Arleux itself, the garlic recipes include roasted garlic chicken and garlic soup.
