Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Cut the top of the pumpkin (the first quarter of the fruit) to form a bowl. Clean the inside and remove filaments and seeds. Rub the inside with nutmeg and pepper. Butter the inside with half the butter.
Place pumpkin in an oven-proof dish, cover with the top slice slightly off-centre and cook 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the pumpkin in nearly fully cooked.
Meanwhile, melt rest of butter in a skillet and sauté onion and garlic 1 minute. Add apple cider and lemon juice and simmer 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and add the rest of the ingredients, stirring constantly until the cheeses are completely melted and mixed.
Empty cooking juice from pumpkin, pour cheese mixture into pumpkin and cook in the oven another 20 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare pieces of cheese or Irresistible pepper puffs.
Serve with fondue forks and spoons to cut out pieces of pumpkin dipped in the melted cheese.
These dry, more delicate wines stand out with their pale colour, simple fruit aromas, and the sensation of freshness their acidity brings forth.
