In a large sauce pan, heat chicken stock. Remove the leaves from the parsley and chop very finely. Remove stock from the heat, add the parsley stems and put aside to steep.
Melt the butter over low heat in a large pot. Add garlic and cook for about a minute. Stir in the flour and cook for several minutes, making a roux.
Remove the parsley stems from the broth. Take the roux off the heat and vigorously whisk in the broth until the mixture is smooth and thick.
Add the cream, chopped parsley leaves, chopped burnet, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Heat the soup through over low heat but do not boil.
Add Romano cheese and serve immediately.
