Today the recipe for the French Fridays with Dorie group is Go-with-everything Celery Root Purée.
Dorie´s recipe is easy and since we cook quite a bit with celery root around here, I had no trouble finding some celery root (or "Celeriac") and putting the left-overs to good use. I decided to serve the Go-with-everything Celery Root Purée as an appetizer with a soft-boiled egg, beetroot salad with walnut oil and some cress – made a nice change to the usual potato purée that we eat on a regular basis.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you “All the best for the New Year! – Alles Gute für das Neue Jahr! – Bonne et heureuse année!”. I am very much looking forward to the coming year!
Beautiful photos! I thought the puree was quite good. i like your idea of serving it as an appetizer. I stilll have some leftovers, so I may try that. Andrea, thank you for all you kind comments. I hope you have a very Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much - I was going to serve this with some spicy Asian chicken at first but then completely changed my mind and opted for an appetizer - glad I did because it was a nice, healthy and light first course. Happy New Year to you and your family as well!Delete
Perfect for an appetizer. Tricia and I both enjoyed this quick and easy recipe even though neither of us had everReplyDelete

What a great idea to serve with that beautiful egg and beets. Lovely! (pretty photos too.)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Amy! It was fun playing around with that recipe a bit - just too much potato purée these days, so I did not mind a change and neither did my family! Happy New Year to you and your family!Delete
Oh, how absolutely lovely! I would never have thought to pair this with an egg and a salad and you make it look so scrumptious and inviting. Thank you so much for stopping by, Andrea. I hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year and I look forward to more cooking and baking with you in the year ahead.ReplyDelete

What a clever appetizer! I adore beets and think this is a wonderful pairing. Thank you for your new year wishes. I wish you and your family the happiest of new years in 2013, one filled with love and adventure, and, of course, delicious food! I'm glad to have met you through FFWD, Andrea, and look forward to another year cooking with you and admiring your culinary masterpieces. Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Betsy, it has been a real pleasure cooking and baking along with you and the entire FFwD group - cannot wait for many, many more wonderful Fridays!Delete
Andrea you sure make a lot of things that I don't really care for (celeriac, beetroot, walnut oil) look amazingly beautiful and appealing. Your photos are always such a treat! Happy New Year to you!ReplyDelete
Maggie, so much fun looking at all your wonderful and fun blog posts! Wishing you and your family the very best for 2013!Delete
I do love celery root but your eggs look out of this world!!ReplyDelete
Mary, thanks for all those wonderful comments and wishing you and your family only the very best for the New Year!Delete
Wow, those photos look fabulous. What a delicious-looking dish! Lovely!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!
Candy, thanks for the nice comment - I always appreciate hearing from you and looking at your great blog - all the best for the coming year!Delete
Beautiful presentation, especially with that gorgeous egg! I have to admit, this puree does make for a pretty dish, even if I wasn't thrilled with the flavor of it. Nicely done! And a wonderful New Year to you and your family!ReplyDelete
Sara, so nice that you joined the TwD as well as the FFwD group - I am looking forward to so many exciting upcoming recipes for both the groups and wish you and your family a very happy New Year!Delete
As usual your pictures are just amazing. I've yet to use celery root, but this is the second recipe I've seen for it today. Clearly I'm missing out!. I'm wishing you and your family a happy New Year, and I look forward to drooling over your pictures in 2013.ReplyDelete
Kristin, what a wonderful comment - I am really looking forward to sharing some wonderful recipes and enjoying each others blog posts in 2013!Delete
What a nice idea and, as usual, lovely pictures. I suspect that the beets were a nice twist to the purée. I never would have considered including a soft-boiled egg. In fact, I love them, never make them for myself, and we Americans very seldom put soft-boiled eggs on salads, as you know. In response to your comments on my blog, I look forward to any greetings from your little girls. When I mail something your way, I will try to use colorful and special postage stamps. A different one each time. I enjoyed receiving everyone's cards from outside the States also because I use foreign stamps in soe collage crafting I do. It's even nicer when I know who the stamps came from. As I write this comment, it is 6pm on New Years Eve in America and I realize that the calendar has already turned in Germany. So from here in America, where it's still 2012, to you in Europe where its 2013, Happy, Healthy New Year, Andrea, to you and your family.ReplyDelete
Mary, always such a loving comment and always so greatly appreciated! And thank you so very much for your New Years wishes and all the other fabulous comments you left on my blog in 2012! Looking forward to countless shared cooking/baking adventures in 2013! More greetings from smiling Freya!Delete
How gorgeous! I love soft boiled eggs and I love how you prepared this appetizer dish. That napkin ring is so cute!!!ReplyDelete
Nami, thank you very much - I just found those lovely napkin rings as part of the "new years collection" in one of my favorite stores - there are so many different ones to choose from (I know who will be one of the rather enthusiastic buyers).Delete
