I saved this recipe from Gourmet magazine 1983 and when guests come to QC, they indulge in french cuisine of all kinds. This is a favorite at our place; friends and family drool over this delicious onion soup. Camembert is a change from the usual swiss cheese and it is a popular request from guests.
