Bagna Cauda Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
From the Italian phrase bagno caldo (hot bath), bagna cauda is a warm sauce made with olive oil, anchovies, and garlic, and served with bread and raw vegetables, such as bell peppers and zucchini, for dipping. If you have a fondue pot handy, use it to keep this dip warm while guests help themselves.
