BILL’S HOLIDAY is a seven-part series featuring chef, restaurateur and food writer Bill Granger, showcasing over 40 recipes. Part-personal pilgrimage and part-travelogue but with the emphasis firmly on food, in HOLIDAY, Bill celebrates the varied produce of Australia from the cooler climes of the south, the tropical and exotic north, the arid red centre and the bounty of the seas, and explores the diversity and physical beauty of his Australian heritage. In BILL’S HOLIDAY, Bill will meet the characters who are devoted to their mandarins or squid or salt bush lamb, taking inspiration from their anecdotes, their dedication and their spectacular environments. Via Bill and these focused families and individuals, we will get an insight into the culinary fabric of Australia and the history of its food culture. Each episode of BILL’S HOLIDAY features the food of Australia and Bill’s trademark fresh and seasonal dishes, joyful and uncomplicated as ever, and accessible by all, wherever they happen to live.
