The series will follow the laidback West London-based Australian chef, Bill Granger, who is introducing his own brand of modern Australian cuisine to Londoners at his Granger and Co restaurant, as he scours the world in search of inspiration, from Scandinavian street markets to preparing tea for his daughters.
In the late 1980s, Granger relocated from Melbourne to Sydney to study art. He found inspiration in the city’s lifestyle, light and harbour views.
He worked as a waiter while he studied art. His creative interest slowly moved from art to food. In 1993, he opened a restaurant called “Bills” in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst. Breakfast, and more specifically scrambled eggs, brought Granger to the public’s attention.
A second restaurant, “Bills Surry Hills”, opened in 1996. “Bills Woollahra” was his third restaurant. In 2008, he opened the first “Bills” restaurant outside Australia in Japan, where he had lived for half a year. Since then, he has four restaurants in Japan, Tokyo, Yokohama, and Kamakura.
In 2011, Granger opened his first UK restaurant Granger & Co in London’s Westbourne Grove.
