Cream of Celeriac Soup

Ingredients
1 celeriac
1-2 celery stalks chopped (optional)
20g butter
1 onion or eshallots sliced finely
1 clove garlic finely chopped
2-4 medium potatoes peeled and chopped
1 litre liquid – either chicken stock, water or a combination
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Pure Cream
To serve:
Hazelnut oil (optional)
Freshly ground nutmeg

Peel the celeriac, chop in large pieces and place in acidulated water.
Heat butter in a heavy based saucepan over low heat, then cook the onion, garlic, leek and celery until soft and translucent.
Add the potato and drained celeriac and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
Pour in enough liquid to cover. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer until celeriac and potato are cooked through.
Strain the liquid into a bowl.
Transfer the vegetables to another bowl and puree, adding stock as needed.
Whisk in remaining stock to achieve the desired consistency.
Return soup to a clean pan and gently reheat.
Season to taste and before serving, stir in the cream.
To serve, ladle soup into bowls and drizzle with hazelnut oil and sprinkle with freshly ground nutmeg and and add an extra splash of cream.

Celeriac Puree:
Alternatively, once the vegetables have been strained, they can be blended with some of the stock and/or milk to make a celeriac puree. To finish, stir in a good amount of butter and some pouring cream. Season to taste.

* Acidulated water:  1 litre water, 1T salt, 1T white vinegar or lemon juice
* Ensure the potato and celeriac are cut into pieces which will allow both vegetables to cook in an equal amount of time
* Alternatively use 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a leek
