In Season - British Peas

I've spent many a happy half hour this month shelling fresh peas, the smell is delicious, Summer through and through. I am reliably informed that this years pea season has been a little late but also very bountiful. I am not complaining!

How to have your peas:

Simple - Green pea soup with beignets and minted crème fraiche
Fancy - long white plate of seared scallops on pea puree with crisp pancetta wafers
Rich - Ham hock ravioli with pea veloute and truffle oil
Crisp - Fresh pea tarts with pea shoots
Retro - Chicken Kiev with fluffy butter mash and a panache of peas and beans
