  • sephiroth838 3 years ago about Bagna Cauda
    I'm from central IL and my family has always made it differently.
    1/2 lb butter
    1 can anchovies
    4 cans cream of mushroom soup
    6 heads minced garlic
    1 pint of heavy cream or half and half

    Melt butter in pan, put in minced garlic, slowly cook butter/garlic until butter goes partially/completely clear, stir to prevent burning of butter.
    Put 4 cans of cream of mushroom soup into crockpot on high setting, mix in cut up anchovies.
    Then slowly stir in butter/garlic mixture with the cream into the crockpot. Continue to stir until evenly mixed, then put crockpot on low for 2 or so hours.

    Enjoy with bread or raw veggies (particularly cabbage).

    Fish sauce is not vegetarian!!!
  • elgourmand 6 years ago about Mexican Coastal Tuna
    I like this but fresh fish is something we got heaps of here. Have you ever thought of trying this with fresh cubed Bonita or Yellowfin? The lemon juice WILL cook it and you will have a totally new dish. I'll give it a go and let you know how it turns out. Goza la vida! (Enjoy life!) RJ

    Hi pinot noir.

    You are named after my favorite varietal wine. Sorry to have taken so long to get back to you, but I have been a bit under the weather.

    I am delighted to have you for a cooking buddy and I am flattered by your comments. If I can be of help, email me at and I'll get back to you ASAP.
