Celery Victor is a classic French appetizer dish that features celery as its main ingredient. It is typically served chilled and is known for its refreshing and crisp flavors. This article will provide a detailed guide on how to prepare Celery Victor, along with some interesting facts and variations.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

To make Celery Victor, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions[edit | edit source]

Follow these steps to prepare Celery Victor:

  1. Start by cleaning the celery thoroughly. Remove any dirt or debris and trim off the ends.
  2. Cut the celery into 3-inch long pieces and blanch them in boiling water for about 2 minutes. This will help retain their crispness.
  3. Drain the celery and transfer it to a bowl of ice water to cool down and stop the cooking process.
  4. In a separate saucepan, combine the vegetable broth, white wine, lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. Add the blanched celery to the simmering liquid and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the celery is tender but still firm.
  6. Remove the celery from the liquid and let it cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, transfer the celery to a serving dish and pour some of the cooking liquid over it.
  8. Refrigerate the Celery Victor for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
  9. Serve chilled and enjoy!

Variations[edit | edit source]

While the traditional Celery Victor recipe focuses on the simplicity of celery, there are some variations you can try to add more depth of flavor:

  • Add some chopped fresh herbs like parsley, dill, or chives to the cooking liquid for an extra burst of freshness.
  • Sprinkle some toasted almonds or pine nuts over the Celery Victor for added crunch and nuttiness.
  • For a tangy twist, you can replace the white wine with dry vermouth or add a splash of vinegar to the cooking liquid.
