Instructions

ROASTED VEGETABLES

Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare vegetables for roasting by trimming, peeling and cutting into large strips and fork-sized pieces. (they need to stay on the fondue forks!)

Toss prepared vegetable pieces in olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. (do them in batches if necessary)

Roast in preheated oven until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 10-12 minutes. Start checking at the 10 minute mark and remove the varieties that are done. Return pan to oven until all are crisp-tender. Cool and let sit at room temperature until ready to serve. (if making ahead, cover, chill and return to room temperature before serving time)

DEEP-FRIED ARTICHOKE HEARTS

In three separate small bowls, place the beaten egg, flour and panko crumbs. Season the flour with salt and pepper to taste. (this is your dredging station)

With a slotted spoon, roll an artichoke heart in the seasoned flour, tapping off any excess. Dip artichoke into the egg, rolling to coat. Let excess drip back into bowl. Roll artichoke heart in panko crumbs, making sure to coat all exposed areas.

Place breaded artichoke hearts on a wire rack to dry for 5 minutes before frying.

Meanwhile, heat 1 inch canola oil in a small pot over medium-low heat until it begins to swirl and is hot. Gently drop a breaded heart into the oil with a slotted spoon. Cook on first side until well browed, about 2-3 minutes. Turn over and let cook until completely browned. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels, and place on a warmed plate or bowl for serving.

BAGNA CAUDA

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the olive oil, garlic and anchovies.

Cook, mashing the anchovies with the back of a wooden spoon, until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter.

Pour the mixture into a warmed chafing dish or fondue pot set over a warming candle or spirit lamp. Serve immediately with roasted vegetables and bread for dipping.
