Ingredients Required

For the celeriac purée
2 med Celeriac heads, washed, peeled and roughly chopped
150ml Whipping cream
50g Unsalted butter
1 pinch Salt
1 pinch Black pepper

Cooking Method

Cover the celeriac with water and add 1 tsp of salt. Boil until very soft, then strain through a fine sieve. Press with the back of a spoon to extract as much liquid as possible.

Heat the cream and melt the butter to a nutty brown colour. The ingredients are best combined whilst they are still warm. Put the cream, butter and celeriac in a blender and purée until completely smooth. Season to taste. Reserve.
