In an episode of "The French Chef" tv series titled,  "Steak Dinner For Four in Half an Hour," Julia Child introduced young Food Guy Greg Patent to a deceptively simple recipe for Aigo bouido, Provençal garlic soup. When Other Food Guy Jon Jackson encountered the same recipe in one of Child's cookbooks, he was taken aback by the first ingredient. "Two HEADS of garlic?!"

Yes, indeed. This sweet and delicious soup features two heads of garlic, fresh herbs, cloves, three egg yolks and olive oil.

Julia della Croce, who blogs authoritatively about Italian food, first tried the dense, sweet bisciola (pronounced "bee-shee-OH-la") in Italy's Valtellina Valley. Known as biscieùla, pan di fich (“fig bread”), panun, or panettone valtellinese, it's denser than the brioche-like pannetone you'd find in Milan.

Food Guy Jon Jackson recalls childhood summers, trying to crank an old-fashioned ice cream maker:  "Your little arm would get weak after a few turns of that thing, if you could turn it at all. But you'd never forget the taste of that peach ice cream." The Food Guys's recipe is below. "Consume it while it's very fresh," says Other Food Guy, Greg Patent.

It's Flathead cherry season in Montana, and the Food Guys are on a cherry clafouti kick.  "If you have access to Flathead cherries, now is one of those moments in your year that will only last a few weeks," urges Food Guy, Jon Jackson. Clafouti, the simple French dessert, features a custard base topped with fresh cherries and it's perfect for late July and early August.

When Food Guy Greg Patent went to the grocery store recently, the beets he intended to buy looked tired, so his eyes began wandering over other produce possibilities. They stopped at green cabbage - crisp, fresh and glistening with droplets of water. Cabbage rolls were what he'd make.
