Ebury Press has bought the third book from the founder of Bristol's The Pear Café Elly Curshen, also known as 'Elly Pear'.
In the book, currently untitled, she will explore plant-focused and meat-free dishes, "serving up clever cooking solutions to make eating more plants easier, more adaptable and more delicious than ever,” Ebury said.
The Penguin Random House imprint’s editor Isabel Hayman-Brown acquired world all language rights from Sheila Crowley at Curtis Brown and the currently untitled book will be published in spring 2019.
Curshen’s first two books were published by HarperCollins: Fast Days & Feast Days came out in April 2016 while her second, Elly Pear’s Let’s Eat, was published in June last year.
Hayman-Brown said: “I’m thrilled to have acquired Elly’s third book onto Ebury’s cookery list, where Elly will be a perfect fit. Elly really understands how people cook and I don’t know anyone that makes vegan and veggie food more exciting, easy and delicious than her. I’m really excited to be working with Elly on this book and very much look forward to publication next spring.”
Curshen said: “I’m chuffed to bits to be working on a third book and am delighted to be joining the incredible Ebury list at Penguin Random House, alongside so many great authors. I’m also very, very happy to be working alongside Isabel Hayman-Brown, who I feel has the real ability to bring out the best in me. We make a great team and I’m so excited to see this book come together.”
