· Invest in a stainless steel odour remover to get the awful smell of onions and garlic from your hands! (we sell these!)

· Microwave garlic cloves for 15 seconds and the skin should slip off easily – or try our rubber garlic peelers, which are quick, cheap and simple.

· When mincing garlic, sprinkle on a little salt so the pieces won't stick to your knife or cutting board.

· Instead of adding raw garlic to sauces, saute the garlic first for a milder flavour.
