Recipe Ingredients for Bagna Cauda

1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves of garlic,
12 anchovies
1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
5 carrots
1/4 head cauliflower
1 red pepper

Recipe Directions for Bagna Cauda

  1. Put the olive oil in a pan with the garlic and anchovies and cook over a low heat, stirring, until you have a melted, muddy mess. Everything should begin to meld together. Whisk in 6 tablespoons of butter, and as soon as it has melted, remove from the heat and give a few more beats of your whisk so that everything is creamy and amalgamated. Taste, and if you feel you want this dipping sauce -- which is meant to be pungent but not acrid -- a little more mellow, whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Pour into a dish that, ideally, fits over a flame so that it does not get cold at the table.

  2. Dip in the crudités and eat.
