12 Celery Recipes from Famous Chefs

Here at Lamattina, we love our fresh¬†produce and are proud of all the yummy dishes that people can make from them. In particular, celery is super low calorie, crunchy, and is great both raw and cooked, with a unique flavour. It’s also a great way to stay hydrated. ICYMI, via Shape, here are 12 celery recipes from famous chefs, in case you need more of a reason to buy some fresh and crunchy celery today.

Our favourite recipe from the group is this fancy take on toast and toppings, great for a weekend breakfast or brunch. It’s from Jesse Schenker, the award-winning chef and owner of fine dining restaurants Recette and the Gander in New York’s West Village. Schenker actually battled addiction in his 20s, which led to him spending a short stint in jail, where after what he described as a “painful detox” he regained his love of food when he was assigned to kitchen duty. He was the winner of Iron Chef in 2010.
