Peppery celeriac and sour blue cheese are a match made in heaven and combine in this delicious celeriac soup recipe from Marcello Tully. Serve this soup as a starter over the festive period - it's a great way to make the most of leftover Stilton

Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and add the onions, allowing to sweat (but not brown) for 3-4 minutes
What 'to sweat' means
To sweat is to cook something - usually vegetables - gently on a low-medium heat until tender but not coloured, while stirring frequently
Add the celeriac chunks and water and leave to gently simmer for 40 minutes
After 40 minutes, or when the celeriac has softened, blitz the soup in a liquidiser or food blender until smooth, with no lumps. Season to taste with sugar and salt
Return to a clean pan and bring to the boil. Add the blue cheese pieces, salt and the double cream. Stir gently and check seasoning
Add the finely grated garlic and white wine and bring back to the boil. Distribute into bowls and serve immediately
