      Was looking for something different to serve at a vegetarian "French" themed dinner party. Each vegetable will be served as a separate course, so I'll add to the presentation of this by topping with a few homemade herbed croutons and an additional small dab of creme fraiche. Should be lovely. Thank you for posting this.

      We love celeriac but have only whipped it with potatoes and cream. This is a great addition and will now use this vegetable more often.

      Yumm!! Celeriac really needs a balancer like cream to tone it down a bit. I love creme fraiche but I did this with sour cream because I already had a bit to use up. I had roasted some celery root last night with olive oil and kosher salt and found it strong on my stomach and I realized I like it better as an accent flavor in a soup with a dairy and other vegetables so I was glad to find this recipe! I did one batch with sour cream and one batch with buttermilk, the buttermilk gave a nice tangy accent but I loved the sour cream one the best so I know that creme fraiche would just be to die for!! This is a great recipe for celeriac, thanks!!!!
