In a small bowl, sprinkle 1/4 cup chicken stock
with the gelatin; set aside 5 minutes. Cook in a microwave until liquefied, about 1 minute; set aside.
In a small saucepan
the butter over medium-low heat; stir in the flour. Cook 2 minutes and whisk
in the remaining stock, gelatin mixture, and 1/2 cup cream. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; cook 5 minutes.
In a food processor
, puree the mortadella until smooth and blend
in the cream mixture. Set aside to cool.
