    Ingredients

    25g butter
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    1 medium celeriac, peeled and cubed
    150ml Cinzano Extra Dry Vermouth or white wine

    4 tbsp half fat crème fraîche

    1. Heat the butter in a large pan and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes until softened and golden, then add the cubed celeriac and toss in the butter for 1–2 minutes. Add the vermouth (or wine) and stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes until the celeriac is tender.

To serve, dry-fry the pancetta and apple in a small non-stick frying pan until crisp and golden. Serve the soup with a dollop of the crème fraîche and the pancetta and apple scattered on top.
