The Happy Pear Book

Price: €18.99

Let's face it: while we want to eat more fruit and veg and things we know are good for us, we sometimes fall short because we're not sure how to turn all that great produce into great food. Well, welcome to the Happy Pear way of eating - healthy but never worthy, easy but never dull, and packed with mind-blowing flavour, exciting texture and vibrant colour. The Happy Pear opened ten years ago when twins David and Stephen Flynn, passionate about starting a food revolution in their home town, took over their local fruit and veg shop and later opened a café. Their revolution has not only succeeded, but it is spreading, and The Happy Pear's fans range from young parents to pensioners, ladies-who-lunch to teens-on-the-run, hipsters to Hollywood stars. David and Stephen's first cookbook is full of irresistible recipes for everything from everyday breakfasts, lunches and dinners, to scrumptious - and yes, still wholesome! - cakes and sweet treats, to special occasion splurges. David and Stephen also tell their story (how they transformed from jocks to hippies before finally finding their groove), share their top tips for maximizing taste and goodness in food, and explain how they've succeeded in building a food business based on flavour, health and community. 'One of the funkiest eateries in the country' Irish Independent , '[The Happy Pear is] a foodie institution ... a beautifully presented book with mouthwatering photography' Woman's Way, 'A must-have for any keen cook who's interested in nutrition' Irish Daily Mail, 'I love The Happy Pear ... genuinely good food that brings healthy eating in from the cold' Irish Times

The Story of the Producer

The Happy Pear Living Foods

The Happy Pear Living Foods

Darragh Flynn is the younger brother of the twins Stephen and David Flynn of the Happy Pear in Greystones, Co. Wicklow. In 2009, Darragh set up Living Foods on his half-acre farm just up the road in Newcastle, where he grows range of sprouts - which includes broccoli, alfalfa, cabbage and radish sprouts, together beans and wheatgrass. Called ‘Living Foods’ because – with the exception of the ones that are harvested and cut – they are still growing up until the moment you eat them, sprouts have the highest concentration of nutrition per calorie of any food. Wheatgrass is young wheat – only eight to ten days old - and contains every vitamin and virtually every mineral! The Happy Pear supplies us with bags of cut wheatgrass for juicing in our Juice Master Juice Bar as well as for selling in the store. We also stock some of their sprouts and shoots as well as their Sundried Tomato Pesto and Lovely Basil Pesto, which are a must-taste!
