  • About

This variation on the classic French onion soup replaces the usual white wine and Gruyère with ingredients from Normandy - beer and Camembert cheese. I have successfully replaced the Camembert with Carré de l’Est, which is milder in flavour and has a delicate aroma when ripe. You can, of course, use grated Gruyère or Emmenthal for a more traditional onion soup.
