Bill's Everyday Asian – an evening at ILVE with Bill Granger

A sold out assembly of 70 passionate cookbook buyers and foodies were in attendance to celebrate the new recipe collection from Sydney favourite Bill Granger, Bill’s Everyday Asian.

Bill Granger has long taken pride in presenting delicious food that is simple, fresh and irresistible to look at. Aside from some everyday kitchen tips such as removing the backbone from a whole chicken and a recommendation for the best mortar and pestle a kitchen can have, Bill bestowed upon the eager listeners his easygoing approach to food and his philosophy to cooking and ingredients, perhaps best summed up in his new book when discussing his Asian pantry…
