Welcome to the recipe vault!


Here you will find a series of tried and tested recipes that have tickled my tastebuds, and those of my friends and family, over the years...

Potato and celeriac mash (v) (serves 4, preparation time 10 minutes, cooking time 10 minutes)


I have made this recipe two ways, once as a mash and once as a puree. Both work well and it really depends on the consistency that you require.


  • 225g potatoes

  • 450g celeriac

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 25g butter

  • 75ml creme fraiche

  • seasoning

Optional Extras:

If you want a puree then I would put the ingredients into a blender until they are smooth.

If you want a mash then use a potato masher and less creme fraiche.

Here’s what you do:

Step 1 - Chop the potatoes and celeriac into even sized pieces, about 2cm cubes.

Step 2 - Boil the potatoes, celeriac, garlic and salt for ten minutes (until they are tender) and then drain.

Step 3 - Choose whether you are going to make mash or puree and add the butter, creme fraiche and black pepper. Blend to your desired consistency.

Step 4 - Put the potatoes into the hot oil and allow them to fry until they are golden brown. This should take about 8 minutes.

Step 5 - Turn the chips out onto kitchen towel to drain off any excess oil and then serve.

Kitchen implements required:

  • Chopping board

  • Sharp knife

  • Pan

  • Blender/masher
