"He had this great ability at the stove, great confidence. He was a natural cook... But his very special talent was he could articulate himself and deliver inspiration with words. He spoke in a way that everybody could understand."Marco Pierre White
I was a big fan of Keith Floyd and am sad at his passing yesterday at the age of 65. He will be fondly remembered as the drunken shambolic chef with a fab way with words... and a fondness for the art and not for the money.
I have to say Marco Pierre White's tribute on BBC News was touching... and I would love to be remembered as having a special talent where I could articulate myself and deliver inspiration with words. It would be awesome to be thought of as speaking in a way that everybody could understand.
Keith Floyd... I will miss you.
