GOURMET Chick has just shared with me an exciting piece of news.
The fellow food fanatic says that Australian wonder-chef Bill Granger is planning to open a restaurant in London.
How flippin' exciting!
Bill has God-like status in my household and I partly attribute his Bill Granger Every Day cookbook for igniting my passion for food some two years ago.
Since then we have bought all but one of his books (only missing Sydney Food) and I regularly refer to them when needing new ideas for weekly meals.
His style is easy, fresh and - in the most part - very healthy. For anyone who hasn't yet worshipped at the font of Bill yet, expect lots of Asian-inspired salads and stir-fries, fabulous fish dishes and tantalising puds.
And, what is more, his recipes rarely contain more than a handful of ingredients. He just makes the most of them.
His food makes you want every meal to count.
The boy and I have discussed the possibility of a holiday in Oz next year, in which we'd make the pilgrimage to one of his Sydney restaurants - maybe all three.
Perhaps Bill will get to us first.
Do you know anymore? Let me know....
