Overview

Bill Granger has always had a keen interest in food and loves to experiment in the kitchen. His fascination for developing new ideas led him to establish his own restaurants in Sydney where he runs the successful bills and bills 2. Since writing his best-selling first book, Sydney Food, Bill has been a contributor to numerous publications, including the ABC delicious magazine, and regularly appears in the international press. In his restaurants and at home, he takes advantage of the availability and diversity of ingredients in Sydney. Bill also takes pride in presenting food in a way that is visually appealing. Sydney's multicultural influences are evident in his cooking style and his food is perfect for today's casual way of life. Petrina Tinslay, an internationally renowned food and lifestyle photographer, portrays Bill's food beautifully with her original, fresh style.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Granger's eponymous Sydney restaurant, bills (no capital letter, no apostrophe), is one of Australia's most famous dining spots. While his first cookbook showcased the food from the restaurant, this one includes the recipes he likes to cook at home. A lover of breakfast dishes, he begins with early-morning dishes like French Toast with Fresh Berry Sauce and a homey Mushrooms on Toast. The following recipes-for lunch, afternoon tea (sweet baked goods), and dinner-are generally more sophisticated but still uncomplicated: Rare Tuna Salad with Fennel and Lemon Dressing, for example. Recipes are clearly written and include helpful notes on techniques and ingredients, but they do assume some experience in the kitchen. Granger's food is fresh, innovative, and unfussy, and the gorgeous color photographs and sleek design (reminiscent of Donna Hay's popular titles) combine to make this an attractive volume. Recommended. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
