Read The Happy Pear Online Free - 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, Electric Picnickers 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.

The rating is a mix, as there are some wonderful recipes and the food photography is excellent - although admittedly there could be said to be too many shots of the guys grinning while eating said food. Originally I was going to take off just one star for the nutritional (mis)information, as I'd...

These guys are great. The cookbook is inspiring in character and upbeat. I love the vibe they give off. So far, I've loved the recipes that I've made. My only small criticism is that they give information about nutrition, saying that cheese and olive oil aren't good for you, but then use it in th...

Terribly disappointing with sketchy 'science.'
The authors advocate a plant-based diet, citing endorsements from two internationally renowned vegans (Drs Esselstyn and Campbell) on one page, and then publish recipes containing multiple eggs on almost every other.
On the non-recipe pages, we're mo...

I really enjoyed this book. I'm not a Vegetarian but I do enjoy veggies.
I think I'm going to get my Fiance to bring me out to their cafe at the weekend. I think I would really enjoy the food and the atmosphere.

I was so excited to download this book on kindle, with a view to buying a hard copy with Christmas money. Sadly anything printed in yellow is unreadable on kindle :( So no point waiting your money. Very disappointed and never had this problem before. What I can read of the recipes, th...

This brightly coloured cookbook seemed like a good resource for healthy cooking and eating. After making the Happy Pear Scone recipe, however, it was a strange foray into using up all of the flour in the house (six cups of flour, once converted into British gram measurements!) and a goopy mess wh...

A great recipe book. It's not often you want to read a recipe book from cover to cover, but this one invited you to do it, and you felt amply rewarded.
From the origins of The Happy Pear through their beliefs about food and some genuinely different recipes this book is an eye-opener for healthy ea...

Well some of the recipes are delicious, the lasagnes came out well. However it nearly went in the bin because of the very dodgy nutritional and scientific information which made me grrrrr..... In some cases it is a case of 1+1 =5, I.e. Putting two pieces of information together and leaping to a n...

Love these guys enthusiasm. The recipes are super, tasty and healthy. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to try vegetarian or vegan food at home.

It's not very often you'll find yourself reading a cookbook from cover to cover, but this one I did! This delightful offering from The Happy Pear guys - twin brothers David and Stephen Flynn - is a cookbook and little memoir in one. It takes you through the lads' story, from their jock days to th...
