    2       qt           Water
    2       ts           Salt
    1       pn           Pepper
    2                    Cloves
      1/4   ts           Thyme
      1/2                Bay leaf
    4                    Parsley sprigs
    3       tb           Olive oil
    3                    Egg yolks
    4       tb           Olive oil

    1       c            Grated Swiss or Parmesan
 
   DROP GARLIC CLOVES in boiling water and boil 30
   seconds. Drain, run cold water over the cloves and
   peel. Place the garlic and the rest of the ingredients
   up to the egg yolks in a saucepan and boil slowly for
   30 minutes. Correct the seasoning. Beat the egg yolks
   in a soup tureen until they're thick and sticky. Drop
   by drop, beat in the olive oil as if making a
   mayonnaise. Just before serving, beat a ladleful of
   hot soup into the egg mixture by droplets. Gradually
   strain in the rest, beating, and pressing the juice
   out of the garlic. Serve immediately, accompanied by
   the bread and cheese.
