Australian chef who helped put avocado toast on menus around the world has died

By Sylvia Hui | Associated Press

LONDON — Bill Granger, the Australian chef, food writer and restaurant owner who introduced Australian cuisine to international capitals from London to Seoul, has died. He was 54 years old.

Granger’s family said on social media on Tuesday that the chef died in a London hospital on Christmas Day.

“Devoted husband and father, Bill died peacefully in hospital with his wife Natalie Elliott and three daughters, Edie, Ines and Bunny, at his bedside in their adopted home in London,” the family statement said. He gave no further details.

Born in 1969 in Melbourne, Australia, Granger was a self-taught cook who pursued a career as a chef for more than three decades after dropping out of art school. He opened his first restaurant in 1993 in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst, where he quickly became known for his breakfasts served at a central communal table.

He and his wife then took their restaurant business globally, opening more than a dozen restaurants and cafes under his name in London, Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka in Japan. Their relaxed atmosphere and signature dishes, like avocado on sourdough toast, creamy scrambled eggs and warm ricotta rolls, have been a hit with diners around the world.
