CREAMY CELERIAC SOUP WITH DIJON MUSTARD AND PARMESAN or CREMA DI SEDANO RAPA CON SENAPE DI DIGIONE E PARMIGIANO

celeriac

Sunday is a good day I think, it has always been my cooking and/or baking day (and I think we are many using our Sundays for that), I feel simply inspired by my self inflicted tradition of Sunday baking/cooking I suppose, one thing feeds the other like a snake biting its tail or should there be two snakes in order to make that image into a logical sequence? Whatever it should be, I am soon going down to make something but today I can’t spend that much time in the kitchen because I have to write on a talk that I am giving tomorrow to a group of Swedish tourists who are here on a round trip in Tuscany, I will talk about how it is to live in Italy and about Italian food, two subjects obviously close to my heart but still I do have to give it some kind of structure, especially as I am being paid for it. Always good to give me a little money for what I am doing because then the Lutheran work ethic immediately pops up its head and forces me to go much further that I would have normally, it makes me stretch beyond my lazy limits! But before I go, I want to serve you this creamy celeriac soup with Dijon mustard and parmesan, please have a plate!
