Madame Fromage and Gruyère Gone Wild
It's fondue season, so your local cheese shop likely has a mountain of aged Gruyère to celebrate. Next time you're out, put some in you basket -- "Never fear too much Gruyère!" We're with Madame Fromage on this one.
Gruyère is the trophy wife of any allium. Have a whiff, and you’ll notice that Gruyère even smells faintly like an onion: a bit brash, but sweet. French Onion Soup is the classic Gruyère chauffeur (recipe below), but you can also serve a hefty wedge on a cheese plate with caramelized onions, whole roasted garlic cloves, or even an onion-studded preserve.
