Garlic is the dried root of Allium Sativum, a member of the lily family. It is a close relative to the onion, shallot, leek and chive. Its use spread across the world over 5000 years ago (before recorded history). It was eaten by ancient Greeks and Romans and is still grown in Egypt, but the most favored variety now is Syrian. In the US, it was first cultivated in New Orleans by French settlers, and then missionaries brought it to California.
Garlic is used in cuisines throughout the world, and it is indispensible in Chinese, Italian, and Mexican foods.
