    Fabulous, again and again. I love barely blanched sugar snaps with aioli. My family is addicted to this combo. Thanks! P.S. Loved Francis.

    I do love your podcasts, you always make me laugh out loud, be it on the train or at the gym. I have to tell you something about this recipe though – mushy peas, the UK style, are not mashed up fresh garden peas. Mushy peas are actually soaked marrow fat peas, cooked in a similar way to all dried pulses and always served with malt vinegar. The reason that they’re mushy is that they are from a fish and chip shop and are kept on the heat for hours, so after a while become mushy. I’m sorry to be one of those correcting types, but I know you’re interested in such things, so felt free to speak up!
