Celery jam

  • Cook the celery in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and dry thoroughly.
  • Mix the sugar with 90 ml (1/3 cup) of water and the lemon juice.
  • Bring to a boil, add the celery and cook on low heat for approximately 15 minutes until a jam-like texture is achieved. Set aside.

Honey bread

  • Bring the milk to room temperature, then add the honey and celery jam.
  • Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and egg in a bowl.
  • Pour in the milk, honey and jam mixture. Mix and pour this batter in a square-shaped greased cake pan.
  • Bake for 45 minutes at 180 °C (350 °F).


  • Cut 4 slices of celery and honey bread and toast them. Rub garlic on each slice.
  • Slice the tomato in half horizontally and rub the halves on one side of each slice of toasted bread.
  • Lay the prosciutto on the bread (tomato-rubbed side).
  • Cut slices of Le Péribonka cheese and place them on the prosciutto. Add pepper and sprinkle with smoked paprika. Broil slightly.
  • Cut each slice diagonally to make two triangles. Place on the plates. Garnish with a few arugula leaves. Serve.
