'These lovely boys always create incredibly tasty food' Jamie Oliver

Though they have written two No 1 bestselling vegetarian cookbooks, David and Stephen Flynn, the twins behind the Happy Pear cafés and food business, know it can be challenging to juggle everything and still feel inspired! And being busy dads themselves they also know the pressure of getting delicious healthy meals on the table every day.

So Recipes for Happiness is very close to their hearts. And it does what it says on the cover: it is crammed with recipes to make you happier - including a huge section of economical easy dinners that can be rustled up in 15 minutes (chickpea tikka masala, thai golden curry, one-pot creamy mushroom pasta); gorgeous hearty dishes (goulash, Greek summer stew, an ingenious one-pot lasagne that's cooked the hob); a selection of plant-based alternatives to family favourites (burgers, hotdogs, nuggets, kebabs), and irresistible treats (summer fruit bakewell tart, double choc brownie cake).

For nearly 15 years David and Stephen's mantra has been Eat More Veg!. They have seen fads come and go and they know that what works - for themselves, their families and the thousands of people who eat the Happy Pear way. Cook from Recipes for Happiness and you too will definitely be well on the way to making your life healthier and happier!

The Happy Pear

David Flynn (and others)

The No 1 bestselling cookery book in Ireland - for two years running!

'These lovely boys always create incredibly tasty food.' Jamie Oliver

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.
