Bill Granger is an Australian chef, food writer and the brains behind worldwide restaurant chain Granger & Co. With restaurants all over London, Australia, Tokyo, Seoul and Hawaii, his ability for being able to impress foodies and families alike is what’s made him so successful. In his early career he trained as an artist but his passion slowly moved over to food and he opened his first restaurant, Bill's, in Sydney in 1993 and then another one in 1996. Both were huge and immediate successes, creating a name for this self-taught chef as one to watch in Australia's food industry. 25 years later and he truly spanned the globe with Granger & Co. and now counts four prime-spot, successful restaurants in central London alone. Bill has put his success down to this saying, “Australians live very much for the pleasure of the day to day, whether it’s entertaining friends at home or sitting out in the street on a milk crate having a coffee. I’ve always celebrated our outdoors lifestyle with fresh, seasonal and simple everyday food.” Bill has written 11 best-selling cookbooks and recorded five cookery series where he explores the produce, cuisines and locations he’s filming in. Bill's Kitchen: Notting Hill, Bill's Holiday, Bill's Food and Bill's Tasty Weekend are just some of the 30 television shows that he's been involved with over the years. After travelling back and forth between England and Australia, Bill Granger and his family moved to London for good in 2009. With his wife Natalie, Bill has three daughters called Edie, Ines and Bunny. It's Bill's family and his love for homecooking that's inspired many of the recipes you'll find on our site. So whether you're looking for an indulgent, hearty family meal like homemade pork meatballs that you can spend time preparing, or inspiration for quick and tasty recipes like stir-fry (opens in new tab), we’re sure to have all of Bill’s best ones.
