Spring is in sight!

Here at Yes Peas! we are excited for a very exciting month. With spring in sight and approximately 700 British pea growers in the depth of planting season, seeds are beginning to be sown in the fields up and down the country to kick start the military operation of producing two billion portions of the favourite family vegetable for the nation!

With just one month left until the Young Pea Chef of the Year 2017 competition closes for entries, we hope that youngsters across the country will be spending the next few weeks getting busy in the kitchen to produce delicious delights. If you’ve got an appetite for the humble pea and have a recipe to share, simply head over to the Young Pea Chef website to find out how you can enter and be in with a chance of winning £500 worth of cookery equipment for your school from Waitrose or ProCook.

We know how important it is spending time with family and friends around the dinner table, so to make this month’s Mother’s Day even more special, this Warm Pea, Broccoli, Chorizo and Feta Tart is a mouth-watering dish ideal for the entire family.

This month as we will step into spring, we will be able to enjoy longer and brighter days. We’d love to see you all indulging in your greens, so if you want to share your delicious pea recipes, you’ll find us on Twitter @YesPeas or on Facebook – so go on, show us what you’re made of!

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...
