Bill Granger's "Holiday" is a vibrant partner to the best-selling "Every Day", continuing the exciting format of reportage style photography, personal chapter introductions and Bill's trademark contemporary, stylish recipes. This is a book about laying down lifetime memories through food, taking time out to cook at leisure, relaxing weekends and lazy holidays. Bill opens his family albums to recall his own special food journeys. The recipes are divided into six beautiful, themed chapters: Outdoors, Barefoot, Harvest, Honeymoon, Fireside and Celebration and flow from the most casual of outdoor summer dining or fireside suppers, to fabulous ideas for Christmas or parties. The food is inspired by Bill's own family occasions and interspersed with memories of his travels, personal celebrations and favourite places. Photographed both in Sydney and on location by internationally acclaimed food and lifestyle photographer Petrina Tinslay, "Holiday" echoes the mood of the award-winning TV series "Bill's Food".

A come back from the breakfast king! I feel that this cookbook is one of the best that Bill Granger has published. The recipes are exciting, beautiful and delicious as always. I also love the narration by Bill here. He includes some of his favourite moments from childhood, love and fatherhood, making the book a lot more personal.
In terms of flavours, the book offers a wide range of modern recipes. The inspiration comes from different cuisines and blend well to satisfy Western palate. They are also healthy and reflect the current trend in healthy eating. Not to be missed cookbook!
