From The Stinking Rose Web site: "You heard it right. 40 cloves! But don’t let that number scare you, because they add just the right amount of zest and aroma to make this one of The Stinking Rose’s® most popular dishes! " I LOVE GARLIC!!! MMMM! Prep time depends on if you bought already peeled garlic or not, and if not, how fast you can start peelin'!
