Instructions
  1. Mix the salt and sugar together. Take a plastic container into which your fillet will fit uncured and which will fit in your fridge, and place 5 sprigs of rosemary in the bottom. Generously cover with the salt and sugar mix, lay the fillet onto this, then cover with the rest of the mix (if you have not got enough of the salt and sugar mixture, simply make up some more, 40 per cent salt to 60 per cent sugar). Nestle the rest of the rosemary into this. Cover the container and refrigerate for 3 days.
  2. Remove the fillet from the now damp salt and sugar, rinse under cold running water, and dry with a clean cloth. When dry, take a handful of cracked pepper and rub the firm fillet all over; this should remove any remaining moisture and give an oomph to the meat. Wrap in cling film and keep in the fridge until you use it (this is not a long curing process and as a result the meat will not keep for more than a week and should be refrigerated).
  3. Slice the celeriac very thinly, using the width of a match as a rough guide, then lay a manageable pile of slices flat and slice again into match widths. At this point a mandolin is very useful, but if you don’t have one, do not fear, you can easily achieve matchstick strips of celeriac with a knife. As you go squeeze lemon juice over your growing mound of celeriac strands to prevent them going brown when finished. Fold the Dijon mustard and crème fraîche gently together—don’t beat, as the cream will lose its structure. Season to taste and mix this through the celeriac.
  4. To serve the beef, slice thinly across. You will have beautiful dark red flesh—the color of a fine old master comes to mind. The spirited white celeriac makes a splendid accompaniment.
  5. If you don’t eat it that day, it will be fine the next if kept in the fridge.
