  NOTE:  For a milder, sweeter tasting soup, substitute 8 ounces Swiss
  cheese for the cheddar cheese.
  Heat the butter in a large saucepan.  Add the carrots, celery, and
  onion; saute for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
  Add the flour and cook over low heat until the flower is incorporated
  into the butter, about 1 minute.
  Stirring constantly, gradually add stock and then the cauliflower.
  Bring to a boil and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, or about
  5 minutes. Stir in the grated cheese and cook for about 30 seconds
  until melted. (Do not bring soup to a boil after cheese is added or
  the soup will break.) Stir in the half-and-half; warm the soup over
  low heat. Season with cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon salt or to taste.
  To serve, ladle the soup into warm soup bowls. Sprinkle each portion
  with the diced cheese and serve immediately.
  Makes 4 seervings.
