Heat the oil in a large soup pot. Add onion and garlic, cook over medium heat for 10 to12 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 soup 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.

    This is kind of bland but found the perfect kick. When the onions are starting to caramelize add about 5 or 6 ounces of spicy sausage. I used Andouille, removed from the casing and sliced/coarsely chopped. When the sausage starts to brown well add one roasted red pepper coarsely shopped. Everything else the same, but I left the sausage a little chunky instead of totally pureed. 4 stars as is, 5 stars my way!
    Great recipe! Didn't have white wine, used a pinch of saffron which added some extra flavor.
    Flowers and this soup and a salad, got me alot of browny points with my girlfriend, thanks Emeril///////////////
    Really easy to make and has great flavor.
    We LOVE this soup. The hardest part of the recipe is peeling the garlic. I use more garlic and more onion than the recipe calls for because there's almost such thing as too much! We have it often, at least twice a week, and my cousin always shows up if he hears "garlic soup!"
    Even my onion-hating fiance liked this one! Perfect on a cold night! this has become a regularly used recipe in my house!
    Loved this recipe (although I am scared what my co-workers will think tomorrow). I substituted three small roasted heads of garlic (with thyme) for the 12 garlic cloves for a more smokey taste. I also added 2 cups of beef broth to the mixture to make it more rich. Top it off with a crouton, poached egg, and shaved asiago and you have a filling meal.
    I made this soup a couple of years ago. Now I have to make it at all the holidays for the family. HUGE HIT!
    Everyone thought I was crazy to make this recipe. However, once they tried it they couldn't get enough! This most outstanding!
    years ago I had a garlic soup in Panama, this was AWSOME!!!
