FFwD - Go-with-everything Celery Root Puree
Welcome to the last FFwD recipe for this year.
This week's French Friday with Dorie recipe is Go-with-everything Celery Root Puree. In Australia, celery root is sold as celeriac, and is a strange looking beast that I have never purchased before. It is hard, brown and nobbly on the outside and is quite hard in the middle too, making it a challenge to peel. Peeling it is somewhat like peeling a pineapple, as you slice off the skin in chunks rather than thin strips.
I only made a half recipe of this puree, and I am glad about that - the celery taste was rather overwhelming, despite the presence of potato and several other ingredients, so unless you like celery, I wouldn't recommend trying this dish. I served it as a side with a beef stir fry with lots of sauce for the puree to soak up.
