I don't think it matters.
Most of the garlic/vampire related literature does not designate the prepar ation method, simply stating that the ingestion of enough garlic by the cre ature, whether raw or included in a prepared dish, will cause a severe alle rgic reaction and kill the vampire. If you don't use enough, you may get lu cky and render the creature weak enough to use some other method of renderi ng the undead, well, dead. Options include the proverbial wooden stake or d ecapitation or the use of pure silver. Decapitation and then the stuffing o f a few garlic gloves into the mouth of the severed head has proven to be f airly effective.
Short of actually killing the vampire, if a person eats enough garlic their own blood can become unpalatable to a vampire. Other than those pesky hole s in their neck, they may actually walk away relatively unscathed.
Here are a couple of oft used tests to see if someone is a vampire:
1 - Hang garlic flowers in your room or around your neck. If a person avoid s entering your room or avoids close contact with you, odds are that they a re a vampire.
2 - Cook with lots of garlic and offer the food to the suspected individual . If they shy away (or run away) it's a sure bet they have moroii-ish leani ngs.

Don't know about unpalatable but it can become unpleasant for just about anybody.
Three decades or so ago my wife and I went on a tour in China. We were all carted about whatever city we happened to be in via nice, air conditioned busses; however, while we were off looking at another damn bell tower, the driver always turned off the air. Upon our return, the busses always reeked of garlic, presumably exhuded through the driver's pores.
The Chinese use lots of garlic.

Given the choice of offending a busload of tourists vs. becoming destined to an eternal life of sucking blood after dark, I'd offend those tourists in a NY second.
I'll bet that if you went back to China and found that bus driver, you'd find no holes in his neck nor fangs in his mouth.
Proof positive that the garlic worked.

Crush before peeling with the flat of a cleaver of butcher knife and the skin falls right off.
