Garlic Bread? you are joking..... Get some Bread some Garlic and some Butter or Olive oil (personal taste thing) And get cooking. Crush the garlic into a Paste mixed with a little Olive oil I like gently smeared on the bread and Browned off in the Oven is good.

no idea about sour cream

Mercadona sell pots of fresh cream - pricey though, and I'm pretty sure I've seen 'fresh' frozen cream in the freezer with the ice cream

For that you'll definitely get the right results from one of the small Lidl cartons!
(mind you there are two sorts so make sure you get the runnier, can't remember their respective names in Spanish, sorry

Eroski sell loads of cream. They usually display in close to the margarine. Presedent do two kinds, both labled as nata para cocina culinaria. One is ligera (green label) and a thicker one (blue label). Both are excellent for cooking. I make my own sour cream by adding lemon juice to thick cream and whipping. Saw this tip on the TV.

ooh this sounds interesting, so could you please explain
1- how much lemon juice do you put, per how much cream? (this sentence is sounding strange to me, hope it makes sense)
2- do you have to whip the mixture after?

as for the carbonara thing i meant i preferred it with fresh cream but i dont think its gonna happen. will look again in eroski.

has anyone tried that frozen stuff? any good?
i like putting whipped cream in my bizcocho!
