    1 celeriac
  • Peel and roughly chop the quarters.
  • Place in a large saucepan of boiling water. Simmer for 20 minutes until soft and easily pierced with a knife.
  • Drain, and allow to dry in the colander or sieve for a couple of minutes.
  • Return to the hot saucepan and cut the chunks into smaller pieces. Add butter, cream and seasoning.
    20 g butter, 2 tbsp cream, salt and pepper
  • Blend to a puree with a stick blender or using a food processor. If you prefer, use a traditional potato masher or a fork.
  • Chop up most of the parsley, saving some for garnish. I find the easiest way is to snip it with scissors inside a mug. Stir the parsley into the mash.
    a few sprigs of parsley
  • Check the temperature. If you need to reheat the mash before serving, put the pan back on the hob and stir until you have the temperature you want.
  • Garnish with extra parsley and a little black pepper. Serve right away.
