A truly delicious combination of flavours that I worked up with my friend Jonathan at Brindisa. We wanted it on the menu immediately.
When I first tried this out with my friend Jonathan at Brindisa, he wanted it put on the menu immediately! If you can, use fresh peas from the garden, otherwise defrost frozen peas in some cold water – but they don’t need to be cooked.
Ideally this recipe should use Zamorano, a sheep’s cheese that has almost the same taste as the better-known Manchego but comes from a different region of Spain, Zamora, close to the border with Portugal. If you cannot find Zamorano, Manchego is now easy to find in the UK – most supermarkets stock it. Failing that, Parmesan will do.
