A restaurant in my home town serves an appetizer like this and it’s been a favorite of mine for years. If I go to The Little Village, I have to get this dip. It combines many of my favorite things – roasted red peppers and garlic, hot goat cheese and crusty french bread. In fact, it’s so charming, if I had only those 4 ingredients I’m sure I could be content forever.
Not that I’d want to find out or anything…
