  • 50 ml dry white wine
  • 250 ml beef stock
  • 2 tsp Sherry vinegar
  • To serve: thyme sprigs and frisée salad
Celeriac mash

    For celeriac mash, bring milk, celeriac and potato to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat and cook until celeriac and potato are tender (15-20 minutes). Drain off milk (reserve), add butter to celeriac mixture and coarsely mash with a fork. Add enough reserved milk to form a soft mash consistency, season to taste and keep warm.
