The combination of wine, gruyere cheese and toasty bread in this fish casserole evokes the flavors of fondue - a perfect winter food (we used it during Lent). Choose Pacific cod, and ocean-friendly choice. Make it a meal: Serve with steamed broccoli with crushed red pepper flakes and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Midwest Living Magazine, 06/2006 edition.
