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.

Meet the Author

Famous for the communal table at his tiny Sydney cafe, Bill Granger was serving his parents breakfast in bed by the time he was five. He opened his first restaurant, bills, when he was only 22 and quickly made his reputation with simple scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes. Even the New York Times sings his praises as the "egg master of Sydney". Today, his simple no-fuss cuisine is loved by the rich and famous, not to mention the loyal band of locals who regularly dine at bills and bills 2. With two best-selling cookbooks behind him, Sydney Food and bills food, Bill has been a contributor to numerous publications, including the ABC delicious, magazine.
