A feast for the senses

During the winter months, the house is often filled with the hearty aromas of the rich stews and soups cooking on the stove. The soul-warming spirit of a bowl of soup becomes a luxurious comfort with the addition of gourmet cheese. Clear soups need firm cheeses that add great flavor but won't muddle the broth - try Gruyere, with its sharp taste, or its saltier counterpart, Comté . In the mood for a French onion-style soup with some zing? Try broiling a firm-melting cheese like Raclette atop your next bowl! Cream-based soups get deeper and more flavorful when made with Emmental or other supple cheeses. Alternatively, try adding a fresh and crumbly Goat Cheese into your soup for a creamy, milky finish. Discover a new perspective on these classic winter staples by adding gourmet cheese - awaken your taste buds and surprise your senses!
