Bagna Cauda

How To: 1. Wash and prepare the vegetables. Break the chicory down into individual leaves and slice the fennel and celery into crudités. Make sure that they are nice and dry by patting with a clean towel. Keep them somewhere cool until ready to serve.
2. Melt the butter or ghee in a saucepan, add the anchovies, parsley and cayenne and cook gently until the anchovies dissolve into the butter.
3. Add the crème fraîche, 250 ml water and the garlic and slowly bring to the boil. Lower the heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until reduced by half, then blend.
4. Test a crudité in the mixture to check the consistency. If the flavour isn’t intense enough, then simmer a little longer to reduce and thicken.
5. Serve in a warm dish over a candle or in a fondue pot, swirling through the extra virgin olive oil kept earlier from the anchovies. If the sauce begins to separate, give it a little whisk.
6. Dip the vegetables into the Bagna Cauda and enjoy!
