  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 Onion Chopped
  • 5 Button Mushrooms Chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves Minced
  • 1 tspn Salt
  • 1 tspn Pepper
  • 4 Celery Sticks Peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup Coriander Chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parsley Chopped

Breading Station Ingredients

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Bread Crumbs
  • Oil for Deep Frying


  • 1 Celery Stick Chopped
  • 3 Mint Leaves
  • 25 mL Vodka
  • 25 mL Simple Syrup
  • Lime Juice


  1. In a skillet, melt butter on medium-high heat. Add the onion, mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until onions are tender. Add the celery and cook for 5 more minutes and add to mash potatoes in a separate mixing bowl.

  2. Add the coriander and parsley and mix well. Roll in cylinders that fit in your palm and use a breading station to bread them to deep fry. Dip in egg wash and bread crumbs twice for double coating.

  3. Deep fry on medium-high or 350 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown. Place on paper towels to soak up excess oil.


  1. Use a mortar and pestle to crush and mix the celery and mint leaves. Pour vodka and simple syrup on ice. Use a strainer to juice the celery and mint mix into the vodka. Add lime juice to taste. Top off with 5 ounces of club soda. Garnish with mint leaves and a lime wedge.
