ABOUT THE DISH

Garlic Scapes are the green tops of a garlic plant, they are best eaten raw when curled into a complete circle and best used for cooking when they’ve straightened and matured.

Cutting meat against the grain is very important to insure a the meat is tender and easy to eat. By cutting against the grain, the long muscle fiber of the meat is made into shorter pieces, which translates into a more tender bite.
