Leek, Potato And Celeriac Pie [Feb. 21st, 2014|08:52 am]
Tony Grist
I seem to have invented a recipe...

(Celeriac is my latest culinary discovery. It tastes very like celery but it's a root vegetable so the texture is entirely different)

Leek, Potato And Celeriac Pie

Make a white sauce- add a generous teaspoon of whole grain mustard.

Cut a large potato, a large leek and a sizeable piece of celeriac into small chunks and simmer in the sauce until soft. Season with salt and pepper and add a generous scattering of coriander seed.

Transfer mixture to pie dish and cover with pastry.

Cook until pastry is done.

Thanks for reminding me about celeraic, I must cook with that more often. Tasty like celery, but without the strings.

I'm not fond of celery, but that's altogether to do with its texture.

It was an improvisation- like much of my cooking- but I liked it so much I thought I should write it down.

And they say the British can't cook.

An awful lot of us don't try. Those of us who do aren't so bad...

The English were considered some of the best cooks in Europe up until the 17th century or so; I don't remember what changed at that point. They were still renowned for the best roast beef until the vertical spit roast went out of fashion as the hearth was supplanted by the more modern kitchen.

And the British weren't thought of as BAD cooks until WWII rationing which lasted until the mid-Fifties. Which, you have to admit, is kind of an unfair handicap.

Sounds great. I love celeriac; I've cooked with it myself. Not enough people do.

I suspect they're intimidated by its outer appearance.

Interesting note: if you are looking at historical recipes, most times that they are talking about "celery", they actually mean "celeriac". Also a decent amount of Eastern European cuisine.

Apparently, there have been a decent number of cultures throughout history that have considered the root of the plant to be the edible part, more than the stalk.

Interesting.

I wonder what caused celeriac to fall out of fashion.
