R.I.P. Keith Floyd

Postby Stultus Saxum » Tue Sep 15, 2009 10:00 am

A cook of some repute (he didn't want to be called a chef).

Didn't care what others thought of him as long as he was happy:

Keith Floyd Can't Cook

He will be missed.

I agree and he was always one of my favourite TV cooks. R.I.P. Keith. :(

RIP Keith - you were brilliant and all about the taste and the pleasure. A true cook indeed - chef's think and mess about far too much.

Hope there's a bloody big vineyard wherever you end up! :wink:

I well remember when they did a segment in Oz, and had to go inside to film as it was raining, and set off the smoke alarms in the hotel!!

A good lad, Keith. RIP mate.

I used to enjoy watching Keith. The cock-ups were always hilarious!

I thought there was too much foul language in yesterday's programme, and I ended up feeling sorry for him.
