Winter warmer a la Francaise
Thanks to a (my) wise move in subscribing to Gourmet Traveller's (GT) monthly editions, I'm on the receiving end of 12 months worth of well-edited, seasonal focused recipe mags. Ok, admitedly I arranged the subscription for my dad's Christams pressie but I'll still reserve the back-pats for a good idea! GT's July edition didn't fail to meet expectations either. Smack bang in the high of winter, GT served up the goods and threw a few Frenchie treats our way. My pick of the lot was a hearty, spruced up plate of peas. Yes, the dish of petits pois a la Francaise is said to be a "side" but if, like me, you love your greens just as much I recommend switching this into a broth-ier, soup-ier style feast to hit the spot. On a side note, if you've been the one pushing your peas to the side of your plate all your life, I'm a strong believer that this will convert you.
