Spring has sprung! 

After the flurry of snow at the end of February, temperatures have now returned to normal and Britain’s pea farmers will be finishing off planting this year’s crop. 

February was a really exciting month at Yes Peas! HQ as we launched the Young Pea Chef of the Year 2018competition. We’ve partnered with the Ocado Foundation to offer some fantastic prizes for this year’s winners – for more information and to enter, head over to www.youngpeachef.co.uk!

The competition will close for entries on Friday 13th April so get your thinking cap (or, more accurately, your chef’s hat) on and get cooking! If you have a fantastic recipe that makes the most of the Great British pea then we want to hear about it! 

To give you some inspiration, why not head over to our Recipes tab? We’ve got a number of Spring meal ideas for you to try out this month. Why not give Fish Friday a bit of a twist with the Fish Goujons With Pea Puree And Potato Wedges, or there’s also the Peas on Toast if you just fancy a light bite for your lunch.

And don’t forget – if you try any of our recipes, or just want to say hello, tweet us @YesPeas!

I have been preparing a number of canapes recently and by far the most popular one has been the Pea Blinis with Parma Ham and Mint, closely followed by the Mini Sausage Toadies...
