How to Prep Celeriac

December  9, 2011

The outside may scream "Don't touch me!," but don't let celeriac fool you. Watch A&M take it on, using their knives and vegetable peelers to get to that beautiful white flesh within. It's December -- time to add another root to your repertoire. 

This week's video was once again shot and edited by our fabulous videographer Elena Parker.

Thought it was interesting that Merrill cuts herself using a peeler.....then, for the first time ever, AFTER prepping my celeriac and while peeling a few yukon golds for the mash, I cut myself with a peeler! You really CAN create your own reality! Ha

The coolest lesson I had in culinary root was Chef Andre Soltner personally show me how to peel this beast!

Trillinchick, you are going to have to back that up with data.

Celery root and celeriac are NOT the same vegetable!

the best mashed potatoes I've ever had in my life, was made with celeriac. it was at Willi's Wine Bar in Paris. 16 years ago, and I still think about them!

I think we all have certain vegetables that intimidate us, and these videos are so helpful. No need to fear celery root! Done and done. :)
