Simple, laidback food that bursts with flavour; fresh, inspiring recipes using favourite everyday ingredients - no one does fantastic easy cooking like Bill Granger.

Bill Granger has long been a champion of no-fuss food. Bill is a restaurateur and self-taught cook, but also a working father who cooks for his family every night. Easy is inspired by years of getting delicious, satisfying meals on the table quickly using everyday ingredients from the fridge or store cupboard, all in Bill’s inimitable easygoing style.

In this stunning new cookbook, Bill takes 16 well-loved and accessible main ingredients – from a chicken breast, fillet of fish, cut of lamb or tin of beans to berries, chocolate and a chunk of good cheese – and offers simple yet original dishes.
Easy includes 100 delicious recipes, from satisfying meat and fish, to flavour-packed vegetarian dishes and bakes, bold salads and tasty pasta, and finally mouth-wateringly easy sweet things.

Great food. Big Flavours. No worries. That’s what Bill is all about.

Recipes include:
Chilli Garlic Chicken with Sour Cream Mash
Tandoori Fish with Cucumber Tomato Salad
Goulash with Gnocchi Lamb with Torn Bread and Apricot Stuffing
Fennel Roasted Rack of Pork with Maple Syrup

4.0 out of 5 stars What's in the fridge/cupboard today? 8 Oct 2012
By Marand TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I think it would be fair to say that this isn't the most innovative cookbook around, and there are recipes which are variations on a well-known or commonplace dish. The layout is good, separated into chapters based on a key ingredient (e.g. chicken, steak, rice potatoes, beans, cheese, etc) which makes it easy to pick up something in the shop, like a pork chop or chicken breast, and then make it a bit more interesting. Frequently, once you have the fresh ingredients - meat, fish or veg - the recipe uses store cupboard items. Although the recipes are simple to prepare, you do need to watch the overall timings. Whilst some recipes could be on the table within thirty minutes, others involve reasonably lengthy prep and cooking times.

I think the book may encourage people to vary a standard recipe with different ingredients or flavourings or even to try something new. For example, there is a baked potato & coleslaw recipe - hardly revolutionary - but in this case the coleslaw is based on kohlrabi. I happened to see some in my local farmshop, never having tried it before, inspired to do so by reading the book. I have also tried the preceding recipe for potato, courgette & mozzarella fritters (very more-ish and will become a staple in our house).

On the day the book arrived, I had a pork chop in the fridge for my husband, and some leftover sour cream. Flicking through the book I came across a recipe for braised chops with leek & mustard and gave it a go. My husband certainly enjoyed his meal and it required little or no effort. Another recipe I tried did require a longer prep/cooking time: this was a chick pea, tomato & spinach cottage pie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping it simple 21 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the second Bill Granger cookbook that I own (the other being the excellent Bill's Basics) and it has quickly found it's place as a favourite in my kitchen. It's as beautifully presented as you'd imagine a Granger cookbook to be, and whilst some reviewers have given it negative reviews due to the recipes simplicity, for me there is place for 'Easy'. I don't always want to slave away in the kitchen for hours on end to produce great food, sometimes I need to cook something that is ready to eat in a sort time, or something that can be quickly assembled and left in the oven for a couple of hours allowing me to get on with other important things. It is on these occasions when 'Easy' makes perfect sense, and it is for that simple reason that I highly recommend Granger's latest book.

Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 2:43 Mins
[]Australian chef and restaurateur, Bill Granger, has become somewhat of a household name over the years, most notably due to his television series 'Bill's Food' and his appearances on the likes of GMTV etc. With nine books already under his belt, Granger's tenth cookbook to hit the (highly competitive) shelves is entitled 'Easy'. The book was first published in August of 2012.

Like with his previous cookbooks, this latest endeavour is based around a particular idea - this one being simple, laidback and easy recipes. To quote the book's objective "Bill offers 100 fantastically mid-week-achievable dishes". Fair do's - it's a cookbook that would therefore probably appeal to most people. So how did it fair up with this goal?

Firstly, the book is split into sixteen chapters, each dealing with a particular predominant ingredient. These are:

Piece of Chicken - 18 pages (7 recipes)
Fillet of Fish - 16 pages (7 recipes)
Slab of Steak - 16 pages (6 recipes)
Leg of Lamb - 16 pages (6 recipes)
Pork Chop - 16 pages (5 recipes)
Mince & Sausages - 16 pages (6 recipes)
Pack of Pasta - 14 pages (6 recipes)
Bag of Rice - 16 pages (6 recipes)
Handful of Grains - 14 pages (6 recipes)
Sack of Potatoes - 14 pages (6 recipes)
Tin of Beans - 16 pages (7 recipes)
Slice of Cheese - 14 pages (6 recipes)
Carton of Eggs - 14 pages (6 recipes)
Apples & Pears - 14 pages (5 recipes)
Punnet of Berries - 12 pages (5 recipes)
Block of Chocolate - 14 pages (5 recipes)

Each chapter is presented awash with full-page colour shots of the dishes and related photographs chosen to make the overall presentation of the book look good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, tasty and fun 3 Mar 2013
By josie82 TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Of all the cookbooks I own, Bill Granger's are becoming a fast favourite. This latest offering is no exception. Anything that gives you tasty meals, quickly and easily, is a winner for me. Alongside the recipes, Bill's relaxed style makes you feel like you can accomplish any of the dishes and more.

This particular book contains 100 simple recipes - perfect for tasty, achievable teas and dinners. It's split into 16 different chapters, each concentrating on a different ingredient with recipes for that item. The ingredients/chapters are: Piece of chicken, Fillet of fish, Slab of steak, Leg of lamb, Pork chop, Mince and sausages, Pack of pasta, Bag of rice, Handful of grains, Sack of potatoes, Tin of beans, Slice of cheese, Carton of eggs, Apples and pears, Punnet of berries and Block of chocolate. I really like this approach to a cookery book as more often than not, I have the ingredients and want something to make with them.

The recipes themselves contain a great mixture of everything from the traditional to the fancy. Having said that, even the fancy dishes are presented in such a way that they don't seem too difficult to make and actually make you want to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. There's everything from omlettes, baked potatoes, meatballs and chocolate cake through to baked aubergine, quinoa fritters and gnocchi goulash. A really good mix.

Most of the recipes have a picture - a plus from me - although not always on the same page as the recipe. The recipes themselves have a clear ingredient list and clear instructions and without much of the waffle that's common in some cookbooks.

Overall, I feel this is a really nice cookbook and one that I can recommend. While I don't like it as much as Bill's previous books, it's still a great buy. 4 stars.
