Who will make the Young Pea Chef final?

We would like to kick off this month with a BIG thank you to all the budding young chefs who have entered this year’s Young Pea Chef competition! From pea and mint ice cream, to pea ravioli and chorizo and pea calzone, we have received a very pea-leasing number of mouth-watering recipes from across the country which are sure to get our judges thinking as they select this year’s shortlist!

This April, our Yes Peas! panel of expert judges from Waitrose and ProCook as well as TV chef, Rachel Green and a representative from the industry, will shortlist a total of ten young chefs worthy of the Young Pea Chef 2017 title.

The voting stage will be open from 24th April 2017 and we encourage those of you who have entered to raise as many votes as possible from your friends and family, as well as schools and after-school clubs – after all, it’s down to the Great British public to decide the winning recipe for each category.

Easter is an exciting time, when you can enjoy time with friends and family but before you hunt for that chocolate why not tuck in to Pea Chilli in Taco Shells – a simple yet delicious recipes, which is quick and easy to make! If you’re looking for more recipes to put on the dinner table, or even the picnic table now it’s spring, then look no further than the pea-inspired recipe section here on our website. Go on, see what takes your fancy!
