The highlight of last week was definitely my trip to Buckingham Palace! In
anticipation of the Queen’s forth coming tour of Australia, myself and a
whole host of other Australians were invited to the Palace for a reception.
I toured the royal kitchens and learnt a thing or two about the logistics
of cooking for the Palace. Then it was on to my masterclass with the Royal
Pastry Chef; on the menu – pavlovas and lamingtons. Watch here
Come along for a great night of food- on your plate and on the screen! I will
be hosting a screening of 'Eat Drink Man Woman' at Refuel at The Soho Hotel
on Wednesday 5th October at 6.30pm.
The film is directed by one of my favourite film directors, Ang Lee, and fuses
my two loves, food and family. It is a romantic comedy set in Taiwan about a
widowed master chef, Chu, and his three daughters. I couldn't help but laugh
at the similarities between my life as a father of three girls and his, and
if I wasn't scared enough already, I am now!
Tickets are £55 and include the screening and a 3 course meal – Book now
The lively, intense tastes if Asia have had me hooked since childhood.
From beach shacks to roadside stalls, my flavour memories are intense and
I have used them all as inspiration for my new book, Bill’s Everyday Asian.
My favourites and all the classics have been simplified and given the Bill
makeover to tantalise the tastebuds and fit easily into our busy lives.
This is quick, healthy everyday food with fresh ingredients and zingy
flavours. Available now online and in UK bookstores.
Kicking off the start of the UK tour for my new book, Bill’s Everyday Asian,
I will be teaching a Masterclass at Abergavenny Food Festival this Sunday
18th September 12.30pm at The Angel Hotel. The menu will include a selection
of my favourite dishes from the book – lots of flavour to transport you to
the streets of Vietnam, Japan and beyond.
Creating the big, bold tastes of Asia is simple with fresh ingredients and a
little bit of know how. Come along to discover my secrets! Book tickets now
