Place puree in a large mixing bowl and add the 7 yolks, the fontina the Parmigiano, 1 cup of the breadcrumbs and the nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Butter a bundt pan and sprinkle with remaining bread crumbs. Whip the egg whites to soft peaks and carefully fold into the chestnut mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and place pan in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until a tooothpick pierced at the thickest part leaves just clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool 5 minutes. Using a sharp knife, carefully loosen the edges around the outside and inside perimeters and invert onto a plate.
