Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 20 min.
Celeriac soup with mustard
Peel and wash 800 g celeriac, cut into small pieces...

Stage 2
Celeriac soup with mustard
... putting them as you go into a saucepan containing 1 litre whole milk, so that they do not have time to turn brown once peeled.

Stage 3 - 20 min.
Celeriac soup with mustard
Salt and pepper, then put the pan on medium heat.

Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and cook until the pieces of celeriac are tender.

Do keep an eye on the pan during cooking, as milk tends to boil over easily.

Stage 4 - 3 min.
Celeriac soup with mustard
When the celeriac is well cooked, add 1 tablespoon French mustard and blend until the soup is smooth and creamy.

Stage 5
Celeriac soup with mustard
Serve with a few parsley or chervil leaves scattered on the top.
The weight of celeriac given is just for guidance. You don't need to use that exact weight. One large celeriac will do, or 2 small ones.
A few days in the fridge in a sealed container.
Based on a recipe by Alain Passard.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
