French Fridays: Celery root soup with horseradish cream from My Paris Kitchen

Celery root soup with horseradish cream from My Paris Kitchen on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s  Cook the Book Fridays recipe from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen is the perfect antidote to the chilly temperatures that have all ove a sudden decide to stick around (after a strange fall with temperatures in the 20s somedays!). It’s a  simple soup – celery root with leeks and a few herbs, made with water – so I was concerned it wouldn’t have much flavour. However, it’s garnished with horseradish cream (seriously – whipped cream with horseradish and a touch of lemon juice) and prosciutto chips (thin slices of prosciutto baked in the oven – mine took around 10 minutes longer to dry out and crisp up than the time suggested in the recipe – I’d say just stay close to the oven and keep an eye on them) both of which totally bring this out of the realm of a boring soup. My takeaways? Prosciutto chips on EVERYTHING! And horseradish cream for the win!

  1. Definitely agree about horseradish cream for the win and prosciutto chips on everything! This is a perfect fall soup now that it’s finally getting cold (It’s already November for pete’s sake. It’s time…)

  2. Have the celery root and leeks in the fridge and can’t wait to make it tomorrow. I already am dreaming about the horseradish cream.
