What to serve with Celery Root Puree?

PMH | Dec 29, 2008 08:51 AM

Am serving non-meat, non-fowl, non-game dinner (fish ok)...

Would love to serve celery root puree and another vegetable ("he"/guest tries to avoid simple carbs, and "she"/guest doesn't eat garlic or onions (otherwise, would have done mashed potatoes with roasted garlic, or caramelized onions)...

Was thinking about (a starter of golden and red beet and goat cheese terrine with pistachio shallot dressing), followed by salmon with a mustard glaze, and roasted baby brussel sprouts, (followed by a cheese course, and poached pears) but a chef friend said she didn't see that combo working. Any suggestions for what might go with the celery root puree? I'd love to serve it as it is special and a bit unusual. Many Thanks, Pamela
