  Shallots/1 onion 2 , chopped
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed
  Celeriac 1 Pound, cut into small dice (500 Gram)
  Vegetable stock/Chicken stock 1 1⁄2 Pint (900 Milliliter)
  Single cream/Milk 1⁄2 Pint (300 Milliliter)
  Finely grated parmesan cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (For Serving)
For dumplings
  Dried porcini mushrooms 1⁄4 Ounce (5 Gram, Dried Ceps)
  Butter 1 Ounce (25 Gram)
  Shallot 1 , finely chopped
  Ricotta cheese 6 Ounce (175 Gram)
  Finely grated parmesan cheese 1 Ounce (25 Gram)
  Egg yolks 2 , beaten
  Plain flour 3 Tablespoon (1 Tablespoon Extra For Rolling)
  Chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

1. To make the dumplings, put the porcini into a small bowl and pour over warm water to cover. Leave to soak for 30 minutes. Drain in a fine sieve, reserving the liquid. Rinse the mushrooms well in cold water, chop finely and set aside.
2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat, add the shallot and cook gently, without colouring, for 5-6 minutes, or until softened. Spoon into a bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix to form a soft dough. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes. With lightly floured hands, form the mixture into about 30 small balls, roll in flour and put on to a tray.
3. Meanwhile, to make the soup, melt the butter in a saucepan over a moderate heat, add the shallots or onion and garlic and cook, without colouring, for 5 minutes. Add the celeriac, cover and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the celeriac begins to soften. Add the stock and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
4. Puree the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return the soup to the pan, stir in the cream or milk and season to taste. Reheat without boiling.
5. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the dumplings and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Drain well and add to the soup just before serving.
