While trying to decide whether or not to grow celeriac last year,  I came across an interesting recipe for Celery root soup with pear, ginger and sage in the food pages of the Boston Globe.  It was presented by Globe correspondent, Sally Pasley Vargas.  We made one change, we substituted shallots for the leek.  Also, Catherine and I both agreed that the soup could use double the ginger listed.  Other than that, we followed the procedure to a “T”.

The pairing of celery root and pear is genius.  This is the kind of soup to make on a snowy day in mid-Winter.  Oh yes, the sage adds just the right herbal accent. Here is a link to the recipe:https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/food-dining/2016/01/19/recipe-for-celery-root-soup-with-pear-ginger-and-sage/01gafRdmZOf5Ecwx5IfOkK/story.html

Happy Eating.

All the best,
