There isn’t much to say about Gregor Mendel’s personal life. He liked bees and had some kids before he joined the church to help pay for his schooling. He became a friar and then an abbot later in life. What do you say about a guy who spent nearly ten years cultivating peas in his free time? I can only hope he came up with some great recipes to use them. French pea soup? Braised peas with onion and dill? Sweet peas with prosciutto? Sauteed cod with pea cream? Cold pea soup aside, this week we’re memorializing Gregor Mendel for his contributions to science as the father of genetics.
