4 potatoes, Russet or Idaho type, or Yukon Gold (yellow) 1 kg
1/4 celeriac, sliced 160 g
3 tbsp butter, unsalted 40 g
2/3 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2% 170 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A food mill or a potato ricer will be very useful to purée the vegetables. A food processor cannot give the proper texture.


  1. Prepare the vegetables: Peel the celeriac than cut it intl slices. Do not peel the potatoes. Boil or steam until very tender, about 20-25 min. Drain well and peel.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, pour in the milk* with butter and microwave on medium-high for a couple tens of seconds until hot.
  3. Pass the vegetables through a food mill, then put the purée back into the pot used to cook the vegetables. Pour in the butter-milk mixture, then add salt and pepper to taste. Blend well using a spatula.
  4. Reheat and serve warm.


* Add more or less milk depending on how creamy you like your purée.
