At the Toronto Garlic Festival, Malty and Hoppy Delicacy is bringing a black garlic infused dark beer jelly (made with Imperial Russian Stout from Wellington), decadent French dark chocolate brownies infused with black garlic and stout, and a gougere infused with fresh garlic – a French puffy and cheesy cake. Gougères are a kind of delicate cheese puff that are a specialty from Burgundy. Their pâte à choux dough is the same one used for éclairs or profiteroles but become gougères when mixed with a generous amount of grated Gruyère or Comté cheese. This is the finger food eaten when tasting wine in Burgundy.
