'Happy food' (Delicious)
There are four branches of Bill's Cafe in the south but, if you're nowhere near one, this is a great taste of his seasonal, relaxed style of cooking and eating. (Tesco Real Food Magazine)
Bill's recipes are consistently fresh, vibrant and bursting with flavour... there's certainly something inside for everyone to cook, eat and share. One thing's for sure, this is a cookbook made for people who are in love with food. (Square Meal Magazine)
Lovingly crafted guide to a cooking year... Bill is clearly a bit of a food champion himself and his enthusiasm is evident on every page. (Mail on Sunday You Magazine)
One of the prettiest cookbooks I've seen in a while. Both the pages and the food vibrate with colour and energy. (BBC Good Food Magazine)
Bursting with vibrant colour, this is a fun celebration of good British produce. (Sainsbury's Magazine)
This beautifully produced recipe book is the perfect showcase for the critically acclaimed Bill's Produce Store and its sumptuous, affordable food.See all Product description

It tells the story of the beginnings of the business and his passion for good local food and is beautifully illustrated.
However it hasn't inspired me to go back to it and try the recipes.
The first thing you'll notice is the design of the book. It's colourful, varied and exceptional with a lot of illustrations and photographs - there is not a single page that looks like the other.
The book is well structured and divided into four sections: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each chapter starts with a little introduction to the season. You'll find an overview featuring the seasonal "Champions" (seasonal products which are used) and the topics addressed in the chapter. These topics can be certain types of food like "spring salads" or events like "mothers day" or "halloween". There is a lot of useful information to each of the "champions" and the book gives some lovely new ideas for homemade gifts, party food or new takes on old recipes.
At the end of the book there is an index featuring the different ingredients. For those who prefer to get more of an overview, you'll also find terms like "salads, soups, icecream".
Long story short, this is by far my favourite cookbook. There are so many recipes I want to try, so many stories to read and a whole bunch of ideas to spice up everyday cooking. If you're looking for a traditional cookbook that'll give you a quick recipe the moment you ask for it, this is probably not for you. But if you want to know more about different food, backgrounds and love to get lost in a book I'll definitely recommed it.
