    I was looking for a French onion soup that was caramelised and herby but nothing seemed to fit 100%!! This is my version of a classic - which makes a lovely starter to a dinner party or a fulfilling main for 2 with plenty of crusty bread.

    This is a nice twist on classic French onion soup, with the lovely addition of celeriac. Topped with toasted baguette and a generous sprinkling of grated cheese, then grilled till golden and bubbling, this makes a fab lunch or impressive starter.
