Elly Curshen – also known as Elly Pear – is the founding owner of the Pear Café in Bristol, described “as a must-visit destination” for fresh, delicious, handmade soups, frittata and sandwiches as well as the ‘legendary’ Butterscotch and Plain Chocolate Brownies.
Elly’s début cookbook, Fast Days and Feast Days was published by Harper Collins in April 2016 and went on to be a Sunday Times bestseller. She has also written for InStyle Magazine as their food and cookery columnist, as well being featured in The Pool, Red, The Guardian, The Independent, Stella Magazine and many more.
Her second book, Elly Pear’s Let’s Eat! will be published by Harper Collins on 15th June 2017. It features over 90 recipes (again, all meat free), many of which are batch cooking ideas with multiple off-shoot recipes. Make a load of something, divide it up and freeze it, then serve it up in a variety of totally different ways, so you’re not eating the same thing again and again!
