Do you ever pay a great deal of attention to a book title? Is it something you read without really taking in what you have read? If this is you then read the title of this book again . . . yes, that's right it says "Every Day" and that sums up what it is - a recipe book for every day.

One of the first things I do when I get a new cookery book is skim through - like a big kid, I just love to look at the pictures! And I have to say there are some great pictures, the few I have chosen to show not doing them justice at all.

There are nice quotes spread throughout the book . . . Grangerisms?

"Make sure you don't overcook the squid - you don't want rubber bands!"

These make the book feel friendlier as if Bill is talking to you while you peruse his recipes. There is no holier than thou attitude - if tinned organic lentils will do, then use them. Although, being someone who enjoys his bed and hates early mornings, I am not sure I agree with him when he says "What's that old saying? That the man who is up early owns the world? It's so true."

But I certainly agree with him when he says "to see food as one of life's great pleasures" . . . Bill Granger is undoubtedly a person who loves his food and that very much comes across as you read through the book - it is a recipe book you can read and it follows a clear pattern throughout as it takes you through every day from Monday to Sunday.

There is a Southern hemisphere / Pacific Rim influence to many of the recipes which brings a freshness to them, especially for those of us living in the Northern hemisphere . . . and these days most of the ingredients used are common to our own supermarkets.

What a great book, got this as a Christmas present and have already cooked more than one recipe from it.

The fragrant chicken and spinach curry is delicious and so easy to make. Most of the recipes are easy and very quick. The whole feel of the food is obviously Australian and in turn light, fresh and summery.

Am now looking forward to buying all of Bills other books!

This really is a great book for every day. Don't think i'll use it for entertaining but for mid week family meals it's fantastic. Provides new ideas that are refreshing but quick and easy which is what i need with an 8 week old baby that is usually restless around our mealtimes.

After seeing Bill's food on tv last year - I had to get a book to follow at home. This book is well written, easy to follow and full of yummy ideas that make you want to rush to the supermarket and buy all the ingredients and get cooking FAST! I love the fresh and simple approach of his writing and recipes and the fact they all turn out perfectly!!

I can't wait to get my hands on his other 4 books (they are sat in my basket as I type!)

This is a brilliant book. I have been a massive fan of Bill since I was living in Australia and have all his books.

This one is different from the others, as it is for all the family. It has handy tips all the way through out for children and ideas for family eating. I have cooked a couple of these recipes and as usual, they are very simple non-fussy yummy recipes!

This makes me feel like I am back in the sunshine in Australia having delicious fresh food!! I would receommend this to everyone to use!!!

Simple to read, simple, ingredients, simple to cook, amazing results that are fresh, light and so tasty.

The recipes in this books are familiy oriented, but with a healthy twist and based on good simple produce.

I loved it so much I bought the rest of his books.

I think Bill Granger has brought clean, simple and quick food into our lives and I am so graetful for that!

Bill Granger's recipes are very simple to follow and often produce divine results. He has a knack for combining fresh flavours for stunning results. My favourite of his recipe books is "Sydney Food" - so often I buy recipe books and only ever cook a handful of the recipes (if that!) but I've probably made and enjoyed about a third of that book. Unfortunately "Everyday" has not become a staple for me.

For starters, the concept seems forced. Most of Bill's other books are broken into dayparts - breakfast ideas, morning tea, lunch etc. "Everyday" is divided by day of the week. This probably seemed like a great idea when it was first proposed. For example, "Sunday" includes big breakfasts, sunday roasts and soup suppers. Monday kicks off with energizing breakfasts and friends come for dinner on Thursdays. However all too quickly it becomes a matter of "where can we put glam salads?" and "easy weekday dinners?". If you're looking for ideas for dinner, they can be anywhere. Thankfully the index is well laid out, because that's what I end up browsing through for ideas.

The recipes that we have cooked have been fine - delicious even - but they feel like variations on recipes that I have seen from Bill before. There are a few standouts that we've loved and will cook again: the fragrant chicken and spinach curry is great, stir fried chicken with peanuts and cucumber was also good and the flavours in the haloumi open sandwich are superb. But others disappointed: his caramel salmon recipe is okay but nowhere near as divinely delicious as the one written by Jill Dupleix in "Simple Food". Berry hotcakes are okay, but a poor second to the ricotta hotcakes with honeycomb butter from "Sydney Food".
