Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers

1980 / 51min / Digital

DIRECTOR: LES BLANK

Les Blank pretty much created the genre of food documentary with this 1980 love-letter to the stinking rose. Featuring a young Alice Waters, and a host of No-Cal foodies, 10 Mothers is both quaint and quixotic. The scenes filmed at the Gilroy Garlic Festival always remind me of a gustatory Woodstock.
