      Real nice soup ! ! For the emmanthaler cheese I went on line, and found some from one of the farming markets, near here. Lots, and plenty of flavors. This is definately one I will try again, though everyone liked it as is, for me personally I might put less shallots in next time. Great the way it was made though, made exactly as posted, and made for a nice, light soothing lunch. Made for 1-2-3 hits.

      This is a very good soup! I had to use Gruyere cheese since I could not find Emmantaler. This really had a lot of flavor! Thanks for sharing.
