About the competition

What is the Young Pea Chef of the Year 2018?

Are your pupils brimming with recipe inspiration? Is your son or daughter a whiz with a whisk? The UK's Young Pea Chef of the Year competition is on the hunt for the most inspiring young chefs to create a delicious dish using Britain's favourite family vegetable - the pea!

How do I enter?


Let your creativity go wild! Whether it's a simple starter, hearty main or a wacky dessert, we're looking for children aged up to 16 to send us their pea-fect recipe creations. You can be as adventurous as you like, the only thing we ask is that the Great British Pea is the star of the dish!

Did you know?


The amount of peas grown in the UK each year is equivalent to about 70,000 football pitches and did you know, those little green guys also have superpowers? They're packed full of nutrients, including Vitamin A and C, which is essential for healthy gums and immune systems.
