    Pearlesyarn's Note:

    From The Vegetarian Society Posted here for safe keeping Celeriac always seems to be the poor relation of the root vegetables as people tend to look at its knobbly exterior and shy away from experimenting with it. This is a pity as it has a slightly sweet celery flavour and purées to a beautifully smooth texture. If you cannot obtain celeriac, then try using a squash instead.

      I was a little bit disappointed in this recipe. I expected the pear flavour to shine a bit more than it did. I used 8 ounces of real Stilton instead of the vegetarian kind. Perhaps the next time I would substitute pear nectar for one half of the stock.
