Kohlrabi has a faint taste of coconut. It’s crisp and crunchy, so I thought it would be perfect in an Asian salad.

Celeriac and Cyprus Potato Gratin

Celeriac and potatoes have a wonderful affinity, but the real delight of this recipe Cyprus potatos – their nutty taste and texture is perfect in a gratin.
