The great thing about Hot Cook’s Bagna Cauda Sauce is that the delicious sauce can be easily made with either milk or fresh cream. The milk-based bagna cauda sauce is lighter than the cream-based sauce. However, the anchovies and garlic give it a strong flavor, and the sauce is perfectly thick.

Milk-based bagna cauda is a great sauce that is gentle to your stomach, but you can still enjoy lots of warm, hot vegetables with the sauce.

The cooking time is only 15 minutes. About three minutes after pressing the start button, you can start to smell the delicious aroma of milk, anchovies, and garlic.

  • I used about 1/3 of the 80g jar of anchovies. Before chopping, use a paper towel to remove excess oil from the anchovies. Then finely chop the anchovies by tapping them with a knife.
  • For the garlic, I bought bottled grated garlic from the supermarket. If you are in a hurry, you can skip the grating process.
