The big, bold taste explosions of Asia and the fresh, lively combinations of ingredients have had Bill Granger hooked since childhood. To him, the Asian dishes he most loves to cook and eat aren't exotic but quick, easy and healthy everyday food, whether intensely fresh and zingy or deeply savoury and satisfying. For Bill's Everyday Asian Bill has simplified his favourite classics to create the very best that Asian food has to offer, drawing on his own colourful and varied experiences: from a home-cooked dinner in Singapore to a businessman's breakfast in Japan, along with his most memorable flavour encounters at beach shacks, restaurants and roadside stalls. Beef rendang, pad Thai, satay chicken and bibimbap have all been given the Bill makeover to tantalise the tastebuds and fit our busy lives.
