I love casseroles, they’re perfect in winter or as comfy food. Celery root may seem intimidating at first (how do you peel it and cut it ? Kind of an odd shape/ugly duckling) but it tastes really good in this recipe. Here is France, one celery root is often quite big, you can make more than one dish with it. If you have celery leftovers, you can freeze it. Feel free to also freeze the casserole if necessary.
