This was my favorite dish growing up! my grandmother would prepare this for me every friday for lunch. it's nice and creamy, and very easy to prepare. Use any type of flat white fish you can find on sale for this dish.

I adored this. No wonder it was your favorite. The sauce was my favorite part. I subbed tarragon for the dill and sweet potato for the celery root. This one's a keeper, Mizzy.
