    That is interesting, I did not know that. Asafoetida is one of those ingredients that gets used in magic, for banishing as a kind of demon repellent.

    I read this article about this Korean (I think) chef who cooks for this monastery somewhere on an isolated mountainside and all these world famous chefs go on pilgrimages there cos she's so amazing. All vegetarian but no garlic or onion cos she believes it inflames the senses or some bullshit. Almost all the flavour came from fermenting as far as I could tell, the whole place was full of massive vats of things fermenting - this one is five years old, that one is seven year and so on. Interesting I guess but the food didn't sound that exciting to me.

    On the no garlic no onions thing, I knew about the Jain prohibition on it, but guess it's much wider than that too. I like no allium currieswith spices and meat cooked in yoghurt etc, which I understand is a himalayan thing, but not sure how to cope without garlic in veggie cooking.

    In some cultures, garlic is considered an aphrodisiac

    Yeah in the article it says it's prohibited cos it increases libido.
