Learn how to craft a Root Vegetable Rhumba:

CELERIAC! THE RUNT OF WINTER VEGETABLE BOXES! Does anyone know what to make of this vaguely celeryesque ball of chalky starch? If your taste buds are in doubt but your jive is on, musicalize!

1. Slice off the tops and bottoms of a pair of celeriacs to make flat surfaces.

2. Hollow them out with a spoon until the walls are around 1.5cm thick.

3. Make a hole in the side with an apple corer or a knife (this allows the sweet resonance to escape). Play them with your fingers or a pair of teaspoons.

Warm up with double strokes (right right, left left) on each bongo – also known as mama–daddies – or the paradiddle (RLRR, LRLL) before going on to make up your own grooves. Alternatives to celeriac include swedes, turnips or pumpkins. The fresher the better.
