Bill Granger biography and information
Australian chef and restaurateur Bill Granger is as famous for his sunny disposition as he is for the scrambled eggs that have people queuing round the block. An easy-going approach to food has always been Bill's philosophy and is an important element of his enduring popularity in Australia and in the UK.
Born in Melbourne, Bill moved to Sydney when he was 19 to study fine art. Working as a waiter, his focus gradually shifted from art to food.
He was only 22 when he opened his now-iconic Sydney café, Bill's, a simple affair with a large communal table, open kitchen and whitewashed walls. Three years later, in 1996, the second Bill's opened in Surry Hills. Another restaurant, Bill's Woollahra, opened in 2005.
