Notes

Adapted from a recipe by Delores Vazquez, a very good cook and friend.

We absolutely love creamed potatoes and peas, although I have never seen a recipe quite like this, I just have to remember to try this in the spring. We always have creamed potatoes and peas when the first of the peas come in and there are fresh new potatoes.

A dash of local for every season
