Celeriac, also called celery root, is the perfect candidate for recreating schnitzel, a favorite dish of Austria. When sliced thin and cooked, it becomes tender but retains some firmness. The breadcrumb coating is crispy, the perfect contrast to the creamy mushroom sauce. Whether you are serving guests or a family, this dish is a winner.
