If you read my blog regularly you will know I am taking part in the Applewood Spreadable Blogger Challenge to create recipes using Applewood Spreadable cheese. I already used a pumpkin to create Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie. I then wondered what else I could make. One of the vegetables that caught my eye was a celeriac. I have heard of celeriac but never tried using it before.
Celeriac is a turnip shaped vegetable which has a rather tangy celery like taste. I found out that it can be served raw, in a coleslaw type salad with possibly a mustard sauce or boiled and served like potato. I decided I was going to try making a potato and celeriac gratin, which made a lovely accompaniment to a chicken dish. The addition of panacetta and the Applewood Spreadable Cheese worked really well and it was very tasty.
I will definitely try using celeriac again, I loved the taste and it adds a little more flavour to the potato dish that you would normally have. The Applewood Spreadable cheese worked perfectly as well adding a subtle smoked flavour to the dish.

This is a lovely warming side dish and would also be lovely served with a beef casserole.
