Actually scratch that, Gothenberg, here I am!  I’m over this weekend to celebrate Midsummer in the land of crayfish and schnapps.  I’ve spent the last five summers in Sweden, but strangely enough have never managed to be here on the 24th and 25th of June, when the official midsummer celebrations take place!  This year however that all changes, we have the crayfish, we have the schnapps, the fresh potatoes, and the strawberries, it all kicks off very soon!

Today’s recipe is one from a recent veggie garden shoot I did and to be honest, if you don’t have access to fresh peas, frozen will do perfectly here, so no panic.  The combo of mint and peas is a really refreshing one to enjoy during the summer months made best with fresh ingredients, and the pancetta add a nice salty kick.
