Shagbark Hickory Syrup
The Shagbark hickory syrup is a multi-day foraging project. Find Shagbark, rinse clean and roast in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes. Put into a stock pot, cover with water and simmer for 2-3 hours. Strain, add 25% sugar, simmer and reduce until you have a syrup consistency. Strain and cool.

Smoked Rutabaga Stock
6-8 rutabaga, peeled, sliced and smoked until very smoky. Cover with water with 1-2 sliced onions. Simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Strain, add butter and season with lemon juice and salt. Zest 1-2 rasps of orange into the broth.

To Create the Dish

Grill the blanched celery root over medium heat coals and glaze with syrup. Repeat until tacky and fully cooked.

Using a micro plain, grate fresh black truffle over the glazed celery root. Garnish with crispy celery root, spicy greens and pour the broth tableside before serving.
