It's chervil root.
The French have always loved beetroot buying it already cooked in the market, but now raw beetroot is being promoted but they are mostly red. It is hard to find the golden or candy cane beetroots that are so popular in Toronto's organic markets.
If you see chervil root don't hesitate to try it. Like celeriac (celery root) you can eat it raw or cooked. It is sweet and starchy. Pureed (add lots of cream and butter) it is a good match with game.
