  • 1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 can (2 oz.) anchovies, drained and minced
  • 3 to 4 cups assorted raw vegetables: red or white Belgian endive leaves, fresh fennel slices, celery sticks, red or yellow bell pepper strips, or zucchini slices
  • Baguette slices


  1. 1. In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add olive oil, garlic, and anchovies; stir until mixture is bubbling.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, arrange vegetables on a platter and baguette slices in a bowl.
  3. 3. Pour bagna cauda into a 1 1/2- to 2-cup fondue pot and set over a candle or medium-low alcohol or canned-heat flame (see notes); stir mixture often and adjust heat as needed so garlic doesn't burn. Serve with vegetables and baguette slices.
