Celery root purée, braised fennel and scallop with mango vinegar glaze

Purée de celeri rave, fenouil braisé à l’orange et St Jacques au vinaigre de mangue   I haven’t celery rave in a long time, for no specific reason, maybe because I don’t enjoy peeling it. is that a good enough reason? maybe not.
