Celeriac soup with oysters


You'll need

125 gm unsalted butter ½ onion, coarsely chopped ½ leek, coarsely chopped 2 stalks celery, coarsely chopped 2 small celeriac (about 1.5kg), peeled and coarsely chopped 2 desiree potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped 18 Pacific oysters, freshly shucked 60 ml (¼ cup) pouring cream

Method

  • 01
  • Melt butter in a heavy-based saucepan over low heat, add onion, leek and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add celeriac and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 5 minutes. Add potatoes and 2 litres of water, increase heat to medium, bring to the boil and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper. Simmer for 20-25 minutes or until celeriac and potatoes are cooked. Remove from heat.
  • 02
  • Process soup in batches using a food processor or blender until smooth, then pass through a strainer and season to taste. Divide soup among warm bowls, top each with 3 oysters, drizzle with cream and serve.

Celeriac is a wonderfully versatile vegetable at this time of year. It's great used raw, julienned and mixed with grain mustard mayonnaise, or mashed and served with beef or game. Our favourite is a soup. - Jeremy Strode, Bistrode
