No.8 Celeriac & Ginger Soup

I do have a what can only be described as a passion for soups. There is just something special about a nice warming bowl that fills you up. This soup was served at last years christmas dinner but has since went though a “refinement”.

Celeriac is a very underated vegetable that looks like nothing you’ve seen before. It tastes of celery (as per the name) and has a almost parsnip like quality. It can be roasted, mashed or stewed.  It goes really well with ginger creating a satifying soup.
