Date marinated steak

Celeriac is in season and delicious eaten raw. This salad can be made up to 24 hours in advance an kept in the fridge. Bring it out of the fridge 20 minutes before service to bring it up to room temperature. Babette steak is a chip, but flavoursome cut of meat. It is best served rare as it gets very tough when cooked for too long.
