CELERIAC / CELERY ROOT

Celeriac, or otherwise known as celery root seems to be making it's way into mainstream cooking. 

With the accessibility to recipes and nutritional facts at the tip of our fingers and the click of a page on pinterest it's no wonder that all these "forgotten" foods are now making their way back into our diets. 


What is Celeriac?

Celeriac is the root of celery. It is pale in colour, and has a mild slightly bitter taste to it. It's a little ugly in it's bulbous form but don't let it's looks deter you from picking this up next time you're getting produce! This root is full of vitamins, minerals, fibre, and has countless recipes.
