Bagna Cauda Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2003
My family has been making this for years to go with fondue, but it is good for any occasion! I use 1 stick of butter, 2 can anchovies minced or chopped, lots and lots of fresh garlic, and some olive oil. I've never tried it with cream or chilling it first... I put everything in an electric skillet on med-low heat and let is simmer until the achovies dissolve in with the butter and garlic. Then we dip cabbage and bread into the sauce. Add bits of butter or olive oil if you need a bit more liquid after people have snacked for awhile. Rich and delicious!!! Don't forget to brush and use listerine for the next couple of days :)

I am a garlic lover and when I came across this recipe, I thought it would really be good. Keep in mind: I can't think of ANYTHING that I don't like. I love to cook, especially different things. I had my family for Christmas day this year, and I told everyone they had be bring something different, something they hadn't made before. I thought this would be so much fun. Well, I chose to make this Bagna Cauda. Everyone in my family loves garlic as well, so I thought it would be a big hit. I'm sorry to say....this has to be the worst tasting stuff I have ever made or tasted! When I was making it...I thought, "I hope it tastes better than it smells!" Well...when I got some on my finger, and subconsciously I went to the sink to wash them, instead of the normal 'licking' it off...I knew I was in trouble! :-) But..I thought I'd still taste it and see. I have to be honest and tell you that I gagged. I couldn't even swallow it! I had crusty bread with it. I don't know what others see in this, but I, for one, won't ever make it again. About 5 other family members tried it, because they couldn't believe it could be 'that bad'. Well..they all agreed, hands down...it was horrible. I'm sorry! I guess it's something you had to grow up with!

I thought we were the only family who ate this stuff LOL. My husbands family has passed this down a few generations.
