    In her fascinating book The Flavour Thesaurus, Nicky Segnit writes that the compound 3-sec-butyl-2-methoxypyrazine, which has a slightly musty, green-pea quality is present at higher levels in parsnip than any other vegetable. She suggests pairing parsnips with peas in a winter soup. Here I...

    Recipe Russell's Split Pea and Ham Soup with Snow Peas

    My late father-in-law used to make soups and stews in massive quantities and bring them over to us on a weekly basis. They were almost always bland, but they were always hearty. Then, one day, he brought over a split pea soup that absolutely blew my mind. His wife went on and on about how good...

    Recipe Curried Cauliflower and Pea Soup

    I went looking for this recipe earlier to use party of a massive head of cauliflower I bought at the weekend and couldn't find it anywhere. So with one clue as to which cookbook it was in, I went and looked it up. We've changed the recipe because the original calls for both dairy milk and...

    Recipe Peas à la Francaise with Pink Radicchio

    This is a twist an on the classic French dish of 'Petit Pois à la Francais' - peas cooked with bacon and lettuce. Normally a green lettuce is used but I’ve switched it for slightly bitter pink baby radicchio. I love the combination of the sweet peas, salty bacon and slightly bitter radicchio...

    Recipe Potato, Pea and Dill Patties

    This is barely a recipe at all! But it is so delicious. Dill is the key to this humble dish. You can make this from leftovers, as I did. Its akin to 'bubble and squeak' but perhaps a little more elegant? It could be served as a starter with a yoghurt and mint sauce or as I did, as part of a...
