  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Season the chicken well with salt and pepper. Pour 1 tablespoon of the oil in a flameproof roasting pan, and place over high heat. When very hot, add the chicken pieces skin-side down, and cook, turning occasionally, for 5-8 minutes or until browned all over.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat, and add the garlic heads, turning to coat with the fat. In a large bowl, toss the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, the potatoes, celery root, and the curry powder, to taste. Season with salt and pepper, and add to the pan.
  3. Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes, stirring the vegetables once or twice, until the chicken is white throughout and the potatoes are golden, but still tender. If the exposed garlic tops get too dark during cooking, slice them off before serving. Serve with wilted spinach.
  • Stir the potatoes and celery root halfway through the cooking time, then continue checking occasionally so they don't burn.
