Hi Simona,

something for you is waiting on my blog: http://cookingitalianinthemidwest.blogspot.com/2011/10/end-of-summer-risotto.html


Oh my! This is a fascinating photo, especially in black and white! ;-)

I'm a big fan of celeriac! I love it the French way, raw as a salad vegetable with charcuterie, but I absolutely adore it as a puree instead of potato!

Love the texture in this photo!


Lovely photo and I am a big fan of the Celeriac, too...specially raw!!

Thank you so much, Pola!

Thanks, Paz!

Ciao Alicia. I have actually never eaten it raw: I will definitely try it. And I am wondering how baked celeriac chips taste.

Thanks, Chinmayie!

Grazie, Brii. I must definitely try it raw :)


Perfect in black and white! How do you peel something like that? I'm sure it is delicious in soups, etc.


I don't think celeriac is ugly at all. There's a curious vitality in its texture which fascinates me, and your photo proves it, Simona. Thank you for your fine BWW photo.

Hi Lynne. I scrub it really well. The top half is smoother and easy to peel. The bottom part requires a bit more care: I try to throw away as little as possible of the flesh, still making sure that there is no dirt left behind in some narrow fold.

Ciao Susan. I also think it has a very interesting look. I confess I have never seen the green part. I should try to grow it, I guess, to see how it evolves.
