RIP: Keith Floyd

We are a little down here at Appetite for Cake as have recently found out that Keith Floyd has passed away.

Keith is acknowledged here as a bit of a food hero  – Although I give credit to Nigel Slater’s writing for getting me cooking on a regular basis it is Keith, who as I’ve mentioned before really inspired an interest in food.

I’m not going to say anymore, after all I never met the guy and there are no doubt loads of websites out there with tributes, not just the newspapers.

I will though, on my way home from work be stopping off and buying the best free range chicken I can find and lots of garlic and cooking the first thing I ever made from a Floyd cookbook the Chicken with Forty Cloves of garlic (apologies to work colleagues for tomorrow)  and I will sit down with my chicken supper, a good glass of red, dig out my video of Floyd on France and enjoy !

We’ll miss you Mr F, but you will live on in my family’s culinary heritage !
