Winter is a time of year very rich in seasonal products. In January we can enjoy artichokes, spinach, "calçots" or pumpkin, and as we approach the good weather, the first peas and beans begin to arrive. Although they belong to the legume family, when they are fresh (March to May) they are more like a vegetable, especially peas. Peas are very nutritious and a real delight for the palate, either in a salad -accompanied by broad beans, artichokes, asparagus and mint with black truffle oil- or Catalan-style stews, with broad beans, bacon and black sausage. Enjoy!
