“Where did this dish come from? What’s the matter with peas? Why did people start mushing them? [tastes mushy peas] Oh, that’s why.” – Anthony Bourdain
To do mushy peas justice you need to ensure the following:
- You are outside. Preferably on a chilly evening. Preferably at a fairground.
- The mushy peas are served to you in a polystyrene cup.
- You have access to copious amounts of mint sauce and vinegar.
- You are with people you aren’t ashamed to fart in front of.
Tasty, nutritious (one of your five a day!) and cheap. A true superfood.
Oh, excuse me.
