Yes, but it depends just which "garlic flavor" you're after. When
cooked, garlic tends to mellow out and develop an
interesting, sort of "nutty" flavor, but loses that sharp tang that
you associate with fresh, raw garlic. Both are good, so quite
often you'll want to start out with some garlic in the oil (being
careful not to burn it, of course), and then also toss in a little
more right at the end.
