Cheese and Wine SoupHome >> Recipes
Here is a robust little soup from my neck of the Alps. It is built around the famous Valais white wine Fendant, cream, alpine cheese and white pepper. You can serve it with toasted bread or Swiss rye sourdough.
Cheese and white wine soup
Try to use fromage d'alpage, made up the Alps from flower-grazing cows. Fendant is a tart dry wine very popular in the Valais.

Mix the cream with the chicken stock in a saucepan ...

Bring to a boil, then mix with the cheese cubes in a bowl.
Mix with a wooden spoon until melted.
You can serve this with croûtons but I used Valaisian rye sourdough, the most popular bread we have here in the Valais...

Crack some white pepper, sprinkle ...
