For the October 17 Mill City Cooks demo, Chef Heather Hartman made Celery Root-Apple-Wild Rice Chowder. I overheard several tasters express the same sentiment - it sounds odd, but it tastes surprisingly wonderful.
Ingredients from the Market include celery root (celeriac), apples, wild rice, leeks, yellow onions, potatoes, herbs and Ghee (clarified butter). Other ingredients include olive oil, vegetable stock and half and half.
This wild rice is from Birchwood Native Arts and Foods.
Yukon Gold potatoes add a creamy texture.
Here's an informative Kitchen Window article from a few years ago regarding celeriac, including some interesting recipes.
Below, the finished product displayed in a dish from art vendor, Fresh Mud Pottery.
Recipes from the Mill City Cooks demos can be found online.
