 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
    1      cup           onion -- thinly sliced
   12      cloves        garlic
    1      cup           dry white wine
    1      quart         chicken stock
    1      each          bay leaf
    2      cups          french bread -- 2 inch pieces
      3/4  cup           heavy cream
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
      1/2  cup           gruyere cheese
 
 Heat olive oil in a large soup pot.  Add onion and garlic, cook over medium heat
for 10-12 minutes.  The onion and garlic will begin to caramelize.  
 
 Add the wine and continue to cook for 10 minutes.  
 
 Add the stock and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 30
minutes.  
 
 Add the bread cubes and allow the sour to sit without heat for 10 minutes.  
 
 Remove the bay leaf.  Using a hand held blender, puree until smooth.  Add the
cream and adjust the seasonings.  Serve in a large shallow bowl.  Garnish with
the cheese.
