Ingredients
 

  • 350 g celeriac (500g unpeeled)
  • 350 g potatoes
  • 600 ml whipping cream
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, freshly milled

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 190C / Gas 5.
  • Cut the peeled celeriac in quarters, and then slice into thin slices about a half centimetre thick.
  • Slice the potatoes in the same fashion, then rinse well in cold water.
  • Place both vegetables into a large saucepan cover with water and a couple of teaspoons of salt.
  • Cover and bring to a boil, simmer for 2 minutes; this helps soften the vegetables and gives a much nicer result. Drain well.
  • Carefully cover the bottom of a 24cm x 24cm x 5cm deep baking dish with pieces of celeriac, overlapping quite generously. Do the same with the potatoes.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Continue layering until all the celeriac and potato are used up.
  • Bring the cream and the garlic to a boil and then pour over the celeriac and potato carefully.
  • Press down with a potato masher.
  • Cover with foil, put the dish on a tray, pop into a preheated oven, cook for about 30 minutes, and remove the foil. Continue to cook until well coloured and reduced, probably a further 20 minutes or so.
  • You may want to press down with the masher over the period of cooking.
  • When cooked, a skewer or knife will easily penetrate the creamy cake with very little resistance.
