Garlic Recommendations?

I just got my territorial seed catolog in the mail and was looking at the garlic and shallot bulbs. I wanted to plant a patch of both in my raised bed this fall but with so many varieties to choose from, I find that I'm bewildered. I love to cook with both garlic and shallots and would like to supplement what I get in the store, not match it in my garden. Can anyone recommend varieties that they enjoy? thanks.
