The celeriac (aka “celery root”) is a strange-looking beast. Be not afraid though: lurking beneath the gnarly exterior is a distinctive earthy, creamy flavour. It’s not unlike celery, although not nearly as evil. It’s perfect for autumn/winter soups. This simple recipe is from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage series.

Mushroom Tart (Hugh F-W)

This is a nice recipe from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Every Day for a simple puff pastry mixed mushroom tart. Ideally (according to Hugh anyway) the mushrooms should have been freshly hand-plucked from the countryside immediately prior to making the tart. I found an ordinary tub of button mushrooms did pretty well. I  imagine a mixture of wild mushrooms would look very effective.

Divided into three, the tart formed part of a simple, light supper. You could also serve it as a starter, or increase the quantities for a more substantial main course. It’s simple and quick to make, especially if you already have the puff pastry, either homemade or out of a packet. Apologies for the poor quality of photos, I’ll have to do another one some time to take some better ones!
