"Without garlic I simply would not care to live."
-Louis Diat, Chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

Garlic and spinach are just made for each other. Make sure that you use a very large pan for this recipe so that the water in the spinach will evaporate while you are cooking.

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.

I have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles, but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there's no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef.
