Method

 
Dissolve the stock in a little water and set aside. Heat the butter in a saucepan. Sauté the garlic for a few seconds. Add the flour, nutmeg, coriander and 3ml freshly ground black pepper and stir through.

Gradually stir in the milk, stock, boiling water and cream. Cook, stirring to prevent lumps. You can add more milk if you would prefer the soup to be thinner.

Add the biltong and the cheeses. Stir well. Add the sherry just before serving. Garnish each bowl of soup with a few finely sliced pieces of biltong. Serve with fresh homemade bread.
