I cut the recipe in half & added a couple of inch long squirts of anchovie paste. And I used a ligher flavored oil so it wouldn't taste so heavy. Served this w/ homemade italian bread, celery, baby carrots & bell peppers. The bell peppers meshed the best w/ this dip, I think.

My family used to have bagna cauda frequently. The versions we had included a can of anchioves and then it was served like a fondue. On the side, serve napa cabbage, peppers, onion, etc. Put the veggies in the pot like you would a fondue and then serve them on italian bread. Don't forget the wine!
