Celeriac or celery root is a variety of celery used for its roots and shoots. It has a light celery flavour and can be eaten raw or cooked as you would potatoes, Alison Lambert writes.

Celeriac slaw

1 celeriac (500g) and tops
2 carrots, grated
1 handful of parsley, roughly chopped
3 Tbsp good quality mayonnaise
1 lemon, juice
Salt and freshly cracked pepper

Remove the leaves of the celeriac and set aside.

Peel the celeriac carefully with a sharp knife.

Slice the celeriac thinly, then cut into thin match stick size pieces (approximately).

Place into a bowl, squeeze over the lemon and mix to combine.

Add the grated carrot, season with salt and pepper.

Add the mayonnaise and parsley and mix well to combine.
