Peas in a pod
Aren't these English peas adorable? A couple seasons back on Top Chef, one of the finalists made fresh English peas with a little thyme, butter, garlic, sea salt and pepper for a world renowned chef/judge. The finalist made other things too, but all I remember was how the judge-chef kept raving about the peas. I've been wanted to have freshly shelled peas ever since. So that was my new vegetable of the week. The taste was spot on. The peas, however, were a bit woody despite adequate cook time. Clearly, I have a ways to go before Top Chef comes a knocking at my door. Still, I will try peas again. Super easy, elegant and tasty.
