Welcome to this edition of my A-Z where the letter is P….Paella and pancakes immediately spring to mind as I love both …I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed writing it…
I think every country in the world has a different version of the pancake or is it a Bellini or a scotch pancake or a hotcake or Khao-Gle-at – Traditional handmade Thai pancakes does it come with lemon and sugar or in a stack or with kimchi. I could go on and on, A pancake comes in so many different ways, made with different flours, fillings and toppings or dips. The list is endless.
I love fresh garden peas and have many fond memories of pea picking on my grandad’s farm and also sitting at my grandma’s feet and shucking the peas and eating a few as well. Peas come frozen now and also in their pods as sugar snap peas or flat pods called mange tout, all of which I love.
I also remember the processed peas which have a soft, mealy texture which I used to love as a child but no longer and of course if you are eating Fish & Chips in the North of England they would not be eaten without mushy peas. Even the poshest of restaurants now when they serve fish & chips, you can also have a portion of mushy peas. As the price of fish has risen, it is no longer a poor man’s meal.
Fridays in our house, were always Fish & Chips, and something I will be having as soon as I step off the plane onto British soil again. The best way to eat them is straight from the fryer wrapped in newspaper and eaten with salt and malt vinegar, a truly British tradition.
