The humble celeriac has to be one of my favourite vegetables, and I love this time of year when it comes into season (in the UK). Unlike other vegetables that are available in supermarkets all year round, the celeriac has a much smaller window (Oct-Dec), so I like to make the most of its availability.
There is so much you can do with a celeriac, both cooked and raw, so watch this space over the next few weeks. Don't be put off by its brain-like features and ugly feel, it definitely tastes better than it looks. This dish is inspired by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage (with a few twists) and is perfect for a winter's day, either served by itself or accompanying something else (ham works really well).
