    1. Sweat the onion in the butter in a large saucepan for 5 minutes, making sure it does not brown. Add the cauliflower and a pinch of nutmeg and sweat for a further 5 minutes over moderately low heat.
    2. Cover with the milk, bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes until the cauliflower is soft.
    3. Purée the soup in a blender, then pass through a fine sieve. Pour into a clean saucepan and gently reheat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. Mix the cream and chives together. Ladle the soup into individual serving bowls and top with the chive cream.
