Since opening the hugely popular Pear Cafe nine years ago, Elly Pear has been on a quest for good food and new ideas. Having found real results sticking to the 5:2 way of eating, Elly shares some of her favourite, most exciting meat-free recipes for eating well and enjoying food on both fast days and feast days.
Elly Pear: Fast Days and Feast Days is a collection of more than 100 of Elly's favourite pescatarian recipes from both fast days and feast days, her home kitchen and her cafe, inspired by world cooking but always with an eye on the local greengrocers. With clear and comprehensive advice on shopping well and using your local shops, stocking your fridge and cupboards sensibly and avoiding waste at all costs, this book will guide you to a new way of eating delicious, nutritious food all year round - on fast days and feast days.
She is the founding owner of the Pear Cafe in Bristol, a must-visit destination for fresh, delicious, handmade soups, frittatas, and sandwiches (including the hugely popular Ham, Emmenthal and Chicken Crackling Sandwich, named one of Buzzfeed's "17 Sandwiches You Must Eat Before You Die"). Elly has followed the 5:2 philosophy of eating since 2013 and is a food and cookery columnist for InStyle UK.
