This interesting recipe is taken directly from User:Robin's [Flickr stream]. Original ideas, brilliantly photographed as usual.

I'm not sure where you would buy garlic chives in the UK. Certainly not in big chain supermarkets, though I've seen them in specialist oriental supermarkets.

I grow them from seed in the garden, they are easier to grow than chives. Where I've seen in the wild they are usually on boggy ground and growing in huge numbers.

The flavour is green and grassy with a hint of garlic.
