1 large celery root, about 1 pound, peeled and thinly sliced

2 baking potatoes, like russets, peeled and thinly sliced

2 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced

1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 quart milk

12 ounces Gruyere (or Swiss cheese), shredded (3 cups)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a 3-quart baking dish. Place the celery root, potatoes, and fennel in a large bowl and toss well.
  2. In a large measuring cup, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Whisk in the milk.
  3. Layer 1/3 of the vegetables in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat layering, reserving the last 1/3 of the cheese.
  4. Pour the milk mixture over all, pressing the vegetables to coat them. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake for 1 hour, or until the vegetables are very tender.
