Peeling peas in Paris…


…can be fun when you have a kitchen aid like my little son. He’s 4 years old and interested in cooking and dining, it seems. But even if he only tries to impress me with his skills, he’ll be learning a lot about cooking and life as a whole while helping me in the kitchen.

Children should have their hands on real food very often in order to become decent grown-up people. Unfortunately, many parents don’t care too much about this. And many children only know that dinner is ready when they hear the bell of the microwave oven ringing.

Friday, 5 Feb, my kitchen: peeling peas is recommended

It’s a shame, don’t you think? Here’s a remedy against it: have a delicious, handmade salad. Get fresh peas, a good hand full of mint leaves, prepare a vinaigrette with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Steam the peas (5-6 minutes, then let cool), cut the mint, mix it all with the vinaigrette. Top with some ricotta, if there is any  in your fridge. Sit down. Eat. Enjoy life.

    Your fresh pea salad sounds wonderful! I think it’s a brilliant idea to include children in the mealtime preparations as often as possible. Let them even choose the music so family meals become a celebration of life.
