While I like chocolate, I love tart fruit anything in desserts. Around this time of year I always miss Boston. This recipe will bring a little New England cheer into our west coast kitchen. Thanks!

I agree with you regarding the appeal of slow-cooked autumn food. This is a lovely braise, and, it's true, once you overlook its curdled effect you are in for a treat. We were fortunate enough to eat at the River Cafe several times when we lived in London. Happily I have a few of their cookbooks as a memento.

Rialto is one of my favorite Boston area restaurants, and I bet the cookbook is a winner. What a fantastic trip - along with the recipe inspiration as a result. I will heed your advice and try this.

Celery root teams up with potato and spicy horseradish for a satisfying smash. Popular in Europe and less used in the U.S., celery root, also known as celeriac, is the dark horse of tubers. Don't let it's gnarly, bulbous exterior... Continue reading
