Method

 
Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Slice the onions and place in a pot with the butter and the oil, they will break down in size quite a bit so don't worry if it seems a lot.
On a medium heat, sauté the onions until dark brown and caramelised stirring every so often (about 20-30 mins)
Add the stock, cloves and bay leaf and let it simmer for about 30-40 mins to infuse.
To make the crouton:
Slice the French loaf at an angle about 3cm thick and toast in the oven for a minute or two.
Place the grated gruyére on top and grill until golden.
To serve, place the soup in a bowl and float the crouton on top.
Drizzle with a little KWV Tawny Port.
