One of the great things about the Gilroy Garlic Festival is discovering the amazing dishes chefs create with the, uh, aromatic bulbs.This year's festival, which opens today and runs through Sunday at Christmas Hill Park, should be no exception.Gilroy chef Rachel Spivack is a whiz with garlic, using it to spice up her Southwestern style dishes.

Sam Bozzo and Gene Sakahara always have a few tricks up their sleeves, and they'll compete in a Master Chef challenge today.

Caterers Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme will be making their first appearance at the festival this year.

Co-owner Debbie Blackwell told me they'll be whipping up their famous paella, garlic style.There even will be celebrity chefs around, including Fabio Viviani, Jamie Lauren and Ryan Scott from Bravo's "Top Chef."And don't miss the Great Gilroy Garlic Cook-Off, featuring eight contestants from around the country.

That gets started at 10 a.m.
