A Midsummer Night’s Bean Dip

This combo of humble beans and upscale truffle oil is inspired by the lowly weaver Bottom and Queen Titania’s midsummer night’s dream hookup in her luxury forest bower. The donkey-headed weaver from the other side of the tracks gets a taste of the good life—scalp massages and all-night hay and honey-bag deliveries; and Fairy Queen Titania learns the true meaning of getting down. Like the time you went to Club Med Punta Cana with your family and met Pascal, the trapeze instructor’s son. You taught him the difference between sushi and sashimi; he swept you off your Burberry sandals, flew you to the stars, and made you feel alive. It was never going to last, and neither will this dip.     Ÿ 2 cups

1 (16-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained

3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

8 ounces smoked trout

½ cup chopped parsley

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons truffle-infused oil

1 baguette, thinly sliced

Place all ingredients except the baguette in a food processor and puree. Serve in bowl surrounded by baguette slices.
