Young Pea Chef of the Year 2016 - Voting Closed!

Voting has closed for Britain's Young Pea Chef of the Year competition. Our Young Pea Chefs gathered thousands of well-deserved votes between them and we can't wait to reveal the winner! Our crowned Young Pea Chef of the Year 2016 will be awarded with £500 worth of cooking equipment for their school from competition sponsor, Waitrose. But don't forget - our carefully chosen 10 fantastic finalists will feature in a recipe e-book, showing off their pea-fect cooking skills to the nation!

Meanwhile, with summer just around the corner, the longer days are making us all chirpy and cheerful.  Brighter evenings, gardens full of daffodils, and sunshine (dare we say), is the perfect atmosphere to get us in the mood for al fresco dining. Get picnic ready with our delicious range of lighter, spring recipes - from Green Pea Hummus Salad Wraps to Peas on Toast and Pea, Ham And Cheese Muffins to Cajun Pea And Potato Salad With Spring Onion Dressing.
