THE CURIOUS PEAR
Agent: Sarah Williams
The Curious Pear are Meg Abbott and Issy Croker.
Issy and Meg, first met at school, and quickly launched into a life of travelling and eating side by side. Issy is a photographer, and Meg a writer. Issy went through a phase of cranking up the colour so high that everyone in her photos looked like they’d rolled in wotsit dust, and Meg went through a phase of writing overdramatic poetry that just didn’t make sense. But they persevered with our passions despite the low points, and quickly became each other’s biggest fans.
Last winter The Curious Pear moved to Brooklyn, which coincided with them landing a weekly column for SUITCASE Magazine. Through dining and wining they met and interviewed some of the most inspirational people in the New York food world. After returning to London with a serious case of post NYC blues, they started creating articles on the city’s feeders, and started regularly contributing to more publications. Since then they have interviewed a few of our culinary superheroes, including Yotam Ottolenghi, Fergus Henderson and Magnus Nilsson, and discovered a whole host of incredible new people like Uyen Luu, Anna Jones and Olia Hercules.
