General Discussion Ingredient Substitutions

substitute for celeriac

magnolia | | Mar 1, 2002 04:42 AM

We are making a 'gratin' this weekend which calls for celeriac, potatoes and porcini mushrooms. call me a philistine, but to me celeriac is a 'non-food' - i.e. it has very little flavor, and I hate celery so the association repels the item itself looks like a dried brain (sorry).

SO...any suggestions for an apt substitute? I guess it's in the recipe for the sake of variety (the ingredients are layered)and perhaps texture. By the way I am also averse to courgettes and eggplant...I promise I am not usually this difficult.
