Gratin is one of our favourites, and celeriac gives this recipe an edge. Finely sliced, baked celeriac and potatoes smothered in herb and garlic cream is the ultimate comfort food to make any spread over the festive season more indulgent. You can make the gratin ahead and reheat it when you are ready to serve the rest of your meal.
