    To make the celeriac and potato dauphinoise, melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and onion and fry gently for three minutes until softened and fragrant.

    Add the potato and celeriac. Mix in the cream, season with freshly grated nutmeg, salt and freshly ground pepper and bring to the boil.

  • 5.

    Transfer the boiling mixture to a shallow gratin dish. Place the gratin dish in a roasting tray. Pour in hot water so it reaches halfway up the sides of the gratin dish.

    Meanwhile, place the ribs in a roasting tray, reserving the marinade. Roast for 40 minutes, turning and basting now and then with reserved marinade. Reduce the heat to 150C/300F/Gas 2 and roast for a further 45 minutes, basting and turning now and then.
