I have to confess that until now, I had never tried celeriac (sometimes known as celery root.) I really am sorry that I haven’t discovered it before! With its pleasant aroma and delicious taste, this root variety is ideal for preparing creamy soups or purées. But I remembered an old family recipe for potatoes au gratin that seemed like a great choice for trying out this ingredient. Alternate layers of celery root and potatoes dressed in a cheese sauce create a rico dish that you’ll want to prepare frequently.
Have you tried celery root before? If you haven’t, get ready to know this fresh new flavor.
