This dip is best served warm and bub­bly, so it’s worth root­ing around in your base­ment to find that long-hid­den fon­due set. Serve with blanched as­para­gus or broc­coli, boiled pota­toes or sliced ap­ple. If you don’t have Cal­va­dos on hand, you can make the fon­due with­out it, but it kicks it up a notch. 1 clove gar­lic, halved
