Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190C, gas 5. Rub 1tsp salt into the pork skin. Mix the sage and lemon zest with 1 tsp oil and rub it all over the skin and meat. Transfer the pork, along with the onions and a few whole garlic cloves, to a roasting tin. Roast for 30 mins per 500g, plus 20-30 mins. Allow to rest for 10-15 mins, before carving.
  2. Meanwhile, make the mash: Heat the butter in a pan, add the onion and garlic, cover, and cook for 5 mins. Add the celeriac and cook, covered, for 5 mins. Add 600ml water or stock and simmer for 20 mins, until the celeriac is soft. Drain, then put back into the pan, with the lid on, to steam dry. Mash well and season. Serve with grated nutmeg.
  3. Heat the rest of the oil in a large frying pan. Add the crushed garlic and mushrooms. Cook for 3-4 mins, stirring occasionally. Season well and add the parsley. Serve the pork with the mash and mushrooms.
