Ingredients
  

  • 25 g unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 175 g Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 175 g mascarpone cheese
  • A pinch of ground mace or a little freshly grated nutmeg
  • 100 g pecan nuts, toasted and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • #The toasted pecan nuts add texture to this rich and creamy cheese sauce. Gorgonzola is a strongly flavoured blue cheese that is perfect combined with the milder mascarpone. Other blue cheeses you could use are Roquefort or even Stilton.# Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic and gently fry over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the Gorgonzola, mascarpone, mace and a little seasoning.
  • Cook gently until the sauce is heated through but the cheese still has a little texture.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the pecan nuts and chives. Season to taste and serve hot.
