To Pea, Or Not To Pea... Right now in California, that is no question.  Plump English peas are at their peak, sweet, fresh and vibrantly green.  They taste of spring and sunshine, and because of their brief window of perfection, they should be ordered on sight.

Fortunately, wine country restaurants tend to do more with the peas than classic (and aptly named) English "mushy peas."  Many gorgeous and delicious creations await those who aren't afraid of a little green vegetable in their diet.
