Chilled pea soup with hazelnuts

For this refreshing and flavourful entrée inspired by a recipe from the Pourcel brothers, it's very important to use freshly picked garden peas for unbeatable taste. For garnish and crunchiness, I added young pea sprouts, slivers of toasted hazelnuts and, of course, delicious Moulin de Chanaz hazelnut oil.
