Butternut Squash Soup with Lemon, Crème Fraiche and Nutmeg

Butternut Squash defines the holiday season to me and I have always enjoyed the nostalgia it brings. The appearance of this soup on seasonal menus is a hint that the holiday season is very close, and it is one of the greatest first soups of the season. The flavor is excellent and I especially enjoy the rich and buttery texture.
