      This was SO good! We had this for our 'gourmet', (see my about me page) and my friend made two versions, one with white cheddar and one with the roquefort, as not everyone likes blue cheese. We liked the one with the roquefort better! It had a nice tangy flavour. Thanks for submitting this recipe.

      I love the flavor profile!! However, it is way too thick. Next time thin with more stock or milk. No bacon, so garnished with leeks. No Tawny Port, used Dry Sherry

      Divine~!~ I just recently watched the film, "Julie and Julia". I have a new inspiration in life. This is the first of many recipes to follow before travelling to France to master the fine culinary arts.
