Far Flung Floyd we’ll miss you…

MARVELLOUSLY funny and witty Keith Floyd better known as "far Flung Flyod" for this much loved cooking shows has passed away
and gone to the big kitchen in the sky. He had a heart attack watching TV in Dorset, England.
I was a little sad to learn of this on Monday Sep 14, 2009, as he was a good friend.
I still remember the last time we had drinks in
Scotts Lounge of the Grand Hyatt Singapore. He loved Johnnie Walker Red Label which he could consume in incredible amounts.
Have another Scotch he suggested, but it was late so I said, "Thanks but I have work tomorrow."
Craggy faced Floyd was man of charm and charisma and the way he could cook put some of the TV Chefs to shame, especially those that we professional chefs laugh at for their inept cutting skills. and ludicrous lack of organisation in the mis-en-place, not to mention apalling kitchen hygiene.
Yes, Floyd, wherever you are, you will be missed…but as he would say with a devil- may-care glint in his sparkling eyes, so full of life, "CHEERS!"
