Keith Floyd

Keith Floyd's departure cannot go without a toast to the greatest character in food on TV. Floyd on France and Floyd on Fish were amongst my first serious cookery books which sat alongside Elizabeth David's Mediterranean Cookery.  His influence in my learning to cook was a major one.

His unique brand of panache and bravado that will be sorely missed.

Bless Keith!

  1. What a terrible shame. I really enjoyed his programmes, he was so brilliantly entertaining. He changed the course of TV cookery and made it an informal and accessible place, travelling the world seeking out local gorgeous food he set a precedent for today's food programmes.
