In Celery
The appropriate culinary terminology is "rib" for one piece/stick, and "stalk" for the entire thing/bunch/head. This does not reflect common usage, however, so use caution in interpreting recipes. These terms, however, are not used consistently even by food professionals. "Celery stalk," in American English, is commonly used to mean one piece/rib/stick of celery (in British English, correct me if I'm wrong, it seems more common to say "celery stick"). Also in American English, the whole thing may be referred to as a "bunch of celery." It is sometimes also called a "head" of celery. From my online research (after reading it in an older cookbook) it seems that the correct culinary terminology is "rib" for the single piece/stick, and "stalk" for the whole thing/bunch/head. I was not able to find any botanical terminology describing "rib" and "stalk" (but I'll keep working on it). I would be cautious in interpreting recipes. If the recipe calls for a chopped carrot, a small chopped onion, and a chopped celery stalk... I would go with a rib. Consider the proportion of ingredients when deciding if the author of the recipe meant a rib or the whole bunch. On the other hand, in authoring a recipe, I would choose the more correct term "rib" (which never means the whole bunch) to describe a single piece. The term "bunch" of celery, while maybe not elegant, seems unlikely to cause confusion either. When using the term "stalk," though, it seems prudent to describe exactly what you mean.
