  1. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and saute the garlic cloves until golden. Remove the garlic from the oil and set aside.
  2. Saute the bread slices in the garlicky oil until crusty & golden. Set aside.
  3. Add the garlic cloves to the warm stock crushing them lightly.
  4. Add the sherry if using and let the stock sit for an hour or so.
  5. When ready to serve, strain the stock while pressing the garlic cloves through a sieve with a wooden spoon so that most of the garlic passes through into the stock.
  6. Heat the broth to boiling point and in a large bowl beat the eggs until they are light and frothy then stir in the cream.
  7. Add the eggs and cream to the hot broth, taste for salt and pepper. 

Serve with the fried bread and herb garnish.
