Bill Granger at Abergavenny Food Festival

Stop Press! Bill Granger new addition to guest line-up...

Confirmation of this event came too late for our printed programme (which will be hitting doormats shortly). But we’re delighted to announce that Australian chef Bill Granger will be appearing at The Borough Theatre in conversation with Henry Dimbleby on Sunday 19 September at 2.00pm. Let’s make sure we give him a big welcome.

Son of a butcher, one-time art student and self-taught cook, Bill Granger opened his first Sydney Restaurant at the age of 22. Two more followed in Sydney and two in Japan. He has recently moved with his family to the UK, and the legendary ‘bills breakfast‘ is coming to London soon.

Describing himself as an enthusiastic home-cook – not a chef – his joyful, uncomplicated approach to food and dining is quintessentially Australian and has won him a world-wide fan base for his cookery books and TV series.

Henry Dimbleby is co-founder and proprietor of Leon, London’s health fast food restaurant chain, and the author of Leon Book 2, Naturally Fast Food.

Book your tickets online from 15 July.
