Princess & the Pea Crostini

Princess & the Pea Crostini

I hate peas.

Or at least I think I hate peas.

For as long as I can remember, peas, even just the word itself, caused me distress. They would make appearances in rice or in various Indian dishes like carrot sabji or aloo mattar (potato and pea) dahl. I would cringe and feel repulsed.

In my mind, they were these weird greyish green orbs that had a leathery skin. Their texture was starchy and when my spoon scooped them up – they would become mushy. It was obvious, I disliked them. Any peas that hit my plate, would be picked out or pushed to the side.

Spiced Panna Cotta with Raspberry Pomegranate Jelly

I’ve worked hard to champion the everyday. To savour and appreciate the little things, like good conversation. Some of my best conversations have included food. But, bringing family and friends —old and new—together over a meal, doesn’t happen as often as it should. With life so chaotic and a constant need to move faster, it’s easy to forget to pause.
