Not just any garlic but Iberian garlic which is reported to be rather fiery!
Local Dorset resident David Greenman, was crowned winner of the World Garlic Eating Competition after achieving this incredible feat in Bridport on Saturday. See him in action in this video from The Dorset Echo.
His Prize? £100 and a unique trophy, pictured here, with all other money raised from the event going towards local charities.
We’ll definitely be there next year just to see some of the facial expressions of the contestants (although the smell was apparently quite overpowering!).
Check out a full report of all the action from the day here.
Stay tuned for the World Nettle Eating Championships held in West Dorset next year!
