BILL GRANGER’S BRAND NEW SERIES
Weekdays at 9.00pm (starting Monday 20 July) on Good Food
Bill Granger’s latest series BILL’S HOLIDAY will have its UK premiere on Good Food on Monday 20 July at 9.00pm. Each week night will see a new episode broadcast with repeats being shown at regular intervals throughout the summer months.
BILL'S HOLIDAY is a seven-part series featuring Australia’s sunniest export, restaurateur and food writer Bill Granger. Each episode of the series features the food of Australia and Bill's trademark fresh, seasonal dishes, as joyful and uncomplicated as ever, and accessible by all, wherever they happen to live.
Bill Granger is an iconic Australian chef, author of 7 much loved cookbooks, and presenter of two previous TV series (bill’s food 1 & bill’s food 2). This latest series is full of information, tips and amazing recipes that will appeal to cooks of all abilities. With dishes and destinations to drool over BILL’S HOLIDAY is the ultimate foodie escape.
Part-personal pilgrimage and part-travelogue but with the emphasis firmly on food, Bill celebrates the varied produce of Australia as he travels from the cooler climes of the south to the tropical and exotic north, he ventures deep into the arid red centre, along the rugged coastlines and out to the deserted seas. Throughout the series Bill explores the diversity and physical beauty of his Australian heritage.
In BILL'S HOLIDAY, Bill meets the characters who are devoted to their delicate salt bush lamb, their sweet and juicy mandarins, their freshly caught squid. He takes inspiration from their anecdotes, their dedication and their spectacular environments. Through Bill and the extraordinary producers he tracks down, we get a rare insight into Australia’s indigenous produce and varied food culture, with Bill sharing over 40 of his favourite, regional recipes along the way.
BILL’S HOLIDAY is produced by bills films, a production company set up by Bill Granger and his film and TV producer partner (in life and business), Natalie Elliott. Natalie's credits as producer include two series of the award-winning bills food, dramas, documentaries and high-end television commercials.
