With more than 100 original recipes, Bill's Italian Food takes inspiration from the diversity of Italian regional food to make the most of fresh seasonal produce.

Concentrating on simple, flavoursome dishes with short ingredient lists and uncomplicated methods, the recipes in this book are divided by solution-driven chapters that embody Bill's casual cooking and his spirit of generosity and sharing--approaches that perfectly reflect the Italian lifestyle.

"As our pace of life gets ever faster and cooking for friends and family takes on the same hectic anxiety, why is it that a holiday in Italy sends me home optimistic, revitalised and striving to be a little bit more Italian? It can't be simply the great coffee (although that's certainly revitalising), the crisp pizza and fritto misto, or the antipasto platters shared under wide blue skies...

There is something about the joyfully uncompromising Italian lifestyle, the stubborn refusal to hurry (over lunch, or to catch the autobus), and the sacrosanct importance of sitting down to dine with family that I always resolve to bring home to my kitchen. (And, of course, the golden rule of travel applies: never mention politics, money or sport. Stick to food -- in Italy it's always a winner.)"
Bill Granger

    Comment on this review

    Bill Granger

    Bill Granger is an Australian chef and food writer, loved by family cooks and sophisticated foodies alike, for his relaxed style and fresh local-ingredient led dishes. Bill’s sunny, easy-going approach to food is an essential element in his enduring popularity.

    In 1993, at the age of 24, he dropped out of art school and opened his first restaurant, bills, in Sydney’s Darlinghurst. It quickly became famous for the best scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes in town, served at the now much-copied communal table where locals and visitors, families and celebrities sit down to eat together and thrive on the buzzing atmosphere. Another Sydney restaurant soon followed and in 2008 Bill went international – to Japan, where he now has four successful eateries.

    His first London restaurant, Granger & Co, opened in Notting Hill in 2011. With bills Sydney in Waikiki opening twenty years after he served his first brunch, Bill Granger’s casual, joyful and oh-so-Australian approach to dining has become truly global.

    Bill’s five TV series are viewed in 30 countries; he has published 11 cookbooks, which have been translated into many languages and sold over 1 million copies worldwide; and he writes weekly newspaper and magazine columns in both the UK and Australia.

    In 2006, Bill was awarded the Food Media Club Australia Award for Best Overall Contribution to the Communication of Food and in 2012 Granger & Co won a Condé Nast Traveller Design and Innovation Award. In March 2013 Bill was awarded the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Legends Award, as nominated by his peers.
