  • About

The former kingdom of Savoy borders the Alps and includes Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe. Appropriately, this hearty soup is creamy white and full of root vegetables, bolstered with plenty of cheese. The local Tomme de Savoie is an aged, slightly piquant cow’s-milk cheese, good for cooking as well as for enjoying with bread. Gruyère can take its place here. Serve the soup as a vegetarian main course, in generous bowls and accompanied by country bread.
