It is included in the book Dining on Babylon 5 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0752211439/qid=1140080682/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-9908023-5593660?s=books&v=glance&n=283155), which is now very hard to get hold of ... basically a collection of humanised versions of a load of food mentioned in the show.

Read the first review on the page (by Stephen C Smith) which explains the background to how it came about, and the approach they took. My wife bought it several years ago, and B5 aside, some of the recipes in there are really quite good.

If I can find it, I will see if I can dig out the Bagna Cauda recipe.

:D

Bania was the guy on Seinfeld.

Thanks for all the responses. As for my spelling of Bagna Cauda, I didn't know how it was spelled and when I did a google search on italian fondue the responses listed had it spelled as Bania Calda, Bana Caida, and Bagna Cauda. The one I chose to use in my post was the first one I saw.

If anything, this is evidence of the sheer number of morons who are on the web.

As I've mentioned before, we have the dish every year on NYE. For those who don't like anchovies...the fishy taste is cooked away.

I don't know if any of you are familiar with Keith Floyd, Britain's legendary TV chef, but on his Italian series he made Bagna Cauda (sounds closest to the way he pronounced it). It, like the B.C scene in Babylon 5, was one of the most mouth watering TV moments I've seen.

For those of you who don't know Keith Floyd- he is an absolute Don! Watch ANYTHING he does!
