- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put bread cubes on a sheet tray and bake for 8-10 minutes until crispy. Remove from oven and transfer to a large bowl.
- In a large non stick skillet, melt the olive oil and butter together. Add the onions, carrot, celery, sweet potato, and celery root, then season with salt, pepper, sugar, and maple syrup. Cook for 5-7 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the chicken stock, and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes. Off the heat, add in the heavy cream and cherries and stir until everything is combined.
