  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350°F Peel and quarter the celeriac, and cut it into 1/4in slices. Cut the parsnips into 1/4in slices, too. Butter a gratin dish around 10in x 7in x 2.5in in size. Put half the celeriac in an overlapping layer in the bottom, sprinkle on a little salt, pepper, a few grinds of nutmeg and some thyme.
  2. Dot with a few scraps of butter, then add the parsnips in one layer and season as with the celeriac. Top with another layer of celeriac. Pour over the broth and cream, and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 40 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed. If it's still a little soupy, uncover and bake until most of the broth has evaporated.
  3. While the vegetables are cooking, fry the bacon in a dry pan until just crisp. Cool and toss in a bowl with the cheese. Scatter this over the top of the gratin, turn up the heat to 200C/400F, and cook for a further 15 minutes, until the top is golden and bubbling.
