Bill Granger brings to life his passion for cooking in the same relaxed, stunning style of his cafés and books. Filled with no-fuss recipes using easy to find ingredients, Bills food ensures that everyone can prepare his appealing and delicious food. Bill shows how to cook meals for every occasion, whether it’s breakfast or a barbecue, mid week meals or that special dinner party for family and friends.
The cameras follow Bill through his busy working days and casual weekends at home with family and friends. Whether it’s exploring the inner city street life of Sydney’s Cabramatta, enjoying an early morning swim or lazy days spent cooking from a classic beach house kitchen, Bills food offers simple, flavoursome recipes.
While Bill has always had a keen interest in food, a career in food wasn’t a natural progression for him. He grew up in suburban Melbourne during the 1970’s with a father who was a butcher and a vegetarian mother. Bill says, “I’m a self-taught cook, and my knowledge comes from eating, reading and simply experiencing food. I like to cook the kind of food that people like to eat.”
Bill’s fascination for developing new ideas led him to establish his now iconic Sydney restaurants, Bills and Bills 2, which have been lauded by critics from around the world and are loved by the rich and famous not to mention the loyal band of locals who regularly dine there. He is also one of Australia’s leading food writers having written three international best-selling cookbooks.
“I hope that bills food inspires people to be relaxed with food and have the confidence to realise that food doesn’t have to be complicated to be sophisticated, flavoursome and beautiful,” Bill says.
