  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add cauliflower and blanche 4 minutes, or until very crisp-tender. Drain in a colander; rinse under cold water to stop the cooking. Drain; let dry on paper towels. (Can be prepared up to this point 1 day before serving; refrigerate wrapped in paper towels.)

  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 2 1/2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter.

  3. Melt remaining butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; stir in leeks. Cover skillet; slowly cook 10 minutes, stirring once or twice, until leeks are softened. Remove from heat; add cauliflower and toss. Transfer the mixture to prepared baking dish. Mix cream, nutmeg, salt, and pepper together and pour over cauliflower mixture. Sprinkle Parmesan crumbs over the top. Bake 35 minutes until bubbly and crumb topping is golden.
