Like many Americans, for much of my life I totally avoided ever even trying anchovies. Then while dining in an Italian restaurant one evening, the host ordered anchovies to add to his spaghetti dish. I was intrigued,and gave them a try. I was quite surprised to discover that I REALLY liked the fishy/salty taste of these little fishies. The reason I bring up the above is because of the extreme flavor that the anchovies bring to this dip. If you don't like the strong flavor of anchovies, you probably won't like this dish. The garlic is just an added attraction! I have never been to Italy, so my exposure to Italian food has been entirely of the American variety. I have tried several variations of Bagna that are heavy on olive oil, and I found them less enjoyable. This version that uses heavy cream was - to my taste - truly excellent. Thank you Julie P. for sharing!
