  2. Pour celeriac and potato into a large bowl, and mash slightly with a potato masher. Add butter and remaining 3 ingredients; mash with potato masher until thoroughly blended. (Mixture will not be completely smooth.)

Cook's Notes

Celeriac, or celery root, is a rather unusual vegetable–knobby, hairy, and brown. Its intriguing texture combines the crunch of celery with the smoothness of potatoes. To prepare, simply trim the ends and peel away the rough exterior.
