Our top five celeriac recipes

The  Staff Canteen

A rather interesting tweet from Michelin Guide UK last week declared that kohlrabi is the new celeriac. Naturally, we had to ask our Twitter following for their thoughts. Celeriac was the winner and what better way to celebrate than bringing you five of our favourite celeriac recipes.

Although the poll was close, it was decided by the majority that celeriac stays on top and so we thought we'd celebrate that well-loved knobbly root vegetable by sharing our top five celeriac recipes!
