      Awesome! This is a warm, comforting dish. The only modification I made was to infuse the olive oil with fresh, cracked garlic cloves instead of using the powder. It gave it a subtle hint of fresh garlic. Also, I think that refrigerating it overnight to allow the flavors to combine and develop is essential if you have the time. Absolutely wonderful - well done!

      This is a soup that has perfectly balanced,deep,rich flavours.Elegant enough for a dinner party,yet satisfying enough for a working lunch. This recipe is also easy enough for those who are not terribly confident in the kitchen,to produce a great tasting dish. A triumph-thank you for posting. Made for PRMR.

      I've made this recipe countless times and it is always a wonderful treat! I made it this weekend, and had to use swiss and mozarella cheese (no gruyere in the house) and it turned out beautifully, as always.
      Toasted up the french bread I made yesterday, with olive oil, salt, a bit of parmesan and oregano, cut into 2 inch cubes, makes it nice when you dig your spoon into that cheesy goodness to get a chunk of toast like that.
      Thank you for sharing a really great soup recipe.
