So what does Bill Granger know about Asian food? Well, to be honest I wouldn't have thought he'd know much about Portugal but his recipe for Portuguese custard tarts is one of the most delicious and used recipes ever. And it stands to say that Australians eat plenty of Asian food -and cook it too!
Bill's Everyday Asian is a glossy hardback cookbook the simplifies Asian cooking-there are Chinese, Korean, Malaysian and Singaporean, Thai, Indonesian, Japanese, Vietnamese cuisines all in one book. Bill starts off explaining the basic Asian pantry ingredients and then follows with recipes like Thai green chicken curry, pork baguette with meatballs, Vietnamese pork chop, stir fried chilli pork, char-siu style barbecued pork ribs, beef rendang and bibimbap It's more modern Australian Asian cuisine than hard core Asian cuisine but the recipes are mouthwatering nevertheless.
