Hi Keith, love the new website, have added it to our "favourites" list. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting you last night at Dorchester Corn Exchange - you are a great entertainer. Thanks for the book signing & photo with you - I was first up (Andy) with my 20 year old "Floyd on France". Came straight home and looked up your Cookery Theatre at Linthwaite. WOW what a place - I'm going to book onto the course in May and bring my wife for our wedding anniversary, Looking forward to sharing stories over a bottle (or three) of good red wine. Regards, Andy (fully qualified trainee gastronaut!!!)

Hi Keith, Tess & Cat, I was in school when I saw the new series Floyd on Fish! Watched every series ever since, and bought the books - still practicing! On another note, if you get the chance and inclination, take a look at this:

5 years ago I was looking for a nice XJS Cabriolet when I found this and was quite surprised who the first owner was on the logbook!! All the best with the new venture - I would love to get up to the lake district but have a wedding to pay for this year! Best wishes, Simon & Kathryn

Dear Keith,
Trite though it sounds, your programs and books are practically single handedly responsible for my fondness for eating and general carousing. Brief formalities out of the way, I've got a couple of questions; one routine and one slightly more probing. Firstly are you setting up an actual cookery school at which one can learn to cook beter, or some kind of culinary vaudeville? I'd be delighted to attend either but the cookery school idea is a particulalry fine one. Please keep me posted somehow. Secondly, (and apologies if this isn't popular with your agent) why haven't the BBC or any of the large commercial channels got you plastered accross our screens at 8 O'clock with a new series format yet? Don't get me wrong, I rate Rick Stein highly, but in many peoples minds you'd have been the obvious first choice to front David Pritchards recent French canal boat adventure. Also I must say that you have a considerable cult following among the 25's - 35' age group that has the potential to be much larger if properly exploited. You are considered very "retro cool" for desperate want of a better phrase. (Perhaps I should point out that I'm 27 myself.)Why isn't your agent exploiting this successfully with the TV comissioners? If you want the assistance of a literate, forthright and commercially minded cove (that's me) it would be a pleasure to be of even modest help to one of the few people who inspired me whilst growing up, which arguably I am still doing. (Gratis, naturally.) You can berate/contact/issue restraining orders to 07951 588 651 Good luck with everything. Tristan

Personally, I like the blog better than any glitzy and sterile new web site. I've watched every cooking show since Julia Child and there is none better than Mr. Floyd. Glad to know your liver is still alive. Yan can suck, Emeril can go choke on some cayenne, and the galleon full of today's pretentious fools can all sink into the sea (except possibly for Alton Brown).

Jeff Smith comes in second to Mr. Floyd. This is my opinion, of course, but it's undeniable, so it's as good as fact. Ken Hom embodies the best of cooks, but he is not good on TV.

Blogging, apropos, was invented by Chicagoan Jorn Barger, a friend and artificial intelligence guru who is nearly as eccentric as Keith Floyd. That is to say, he doesn't mean to do it, it just happens. Just like Keith Floyd.

Please ask Mr. Floyd to e-mail me sometime at pete@zelchenko.com. We are developing a new cable cooking show and would appreciate your advice.

Keith,

Drinking to your good health, which we hope is as much good as it is healthy? We trust all is so it should be.

Mere question if I may, quandering of your opinion on what it really is with 'appelation .. controle' or whether one is better to explore the more mutually available and eplorative wines that possibly hold a little more adventure?

Hi Keith Floyd,

I think your webste is brilliant. You are a great chef and very talented. Your shows on tv are great to watch as you have a great witty personality.

Thank you for being a great inspiration.

I would love for you to take a look at my online food journal sometime, I cook all the recipes myself and take lots of step-by-step pictures. You can see it here Jeenas online food journal

Thanks, Jeena.

We are writing because we have today learned the sad news that Keith has died. We guess he will now be cooking his heavenly food in a heavenly place. We will be celebrating his life this weekend with a gastronomic meal cooked using all of his own recipes and washed down with a bottle or three of red wine and a big fat cigar. God Bless you Floyd, we'll miss ya.
