“Bagna cauda” is an intense and savoury sauce made of oil, garlic and anchovies. It is usually served as a starter, accompanied by vegetables.
Its origins are linked to the rural tradition; they say that it was created by the farmers as a way to keep themselves warm during the winter. It is a dish that is made for sharing; it is served in a terracotta container that is put in the middle of the table. Each guest dips their own vegetables into the Bagna Cauda as they chat and sip on a glass of wine.
