Method

Bring cream, garlic and nutmeg to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, watching carefully to make sure cream does not boil over or scald. 

Remove garlic and reduce heat to medium-low.

Add cheese, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until all cheese is incorporated.

Continue stirring until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. 

Remove from the heat, pour into a shallow heat-resistant dish and cool to room temperature. 

Cover the dish and refrigerate until cheese stiffens. 

Scoop out small portions with a spoon or a melon baller. 

Garnish with your choice of accompaniments.
