Anyone ever seen this for sale in Austin?

(Move here from France and its sort of a staple over there. I really miss it!)

    look for it sold as Celery Root - I've seen it in the roots sections at Central Market (near the horseradish, jerusalem artichoke / sunchoke, taro root)

      Thanks! Central Market seems to be the mecca for foodies.

        Yep, +1 on Central Market. So what do you make with it? I love celeriac, but have only ventured as far as puree...

          Celeriac soup is sublime.

            I've made a cream of celery soup from CM celery root that was awesome. You wouldn't think that celery had so much flavor.
