  • Add the flour and cook with the onions a minute or two more.
  • Whisk in the stock, then add the squash and cook until warmed through and smooth.
  • Stir in the cream and bring to a bubble.
  • Stir in the cheeses in a figure eight motion and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Taste to adjust seasonings.
