Product Description

The eccentric but highly acclaimed British chef Keith Floyd has made himself a household name with TV audiences throughout the world by intuitive cooking in odd locations, interspersed with entertaining comments and conversations. Floyd has branded himself a gastronaut to explain his style and approach, and his series consist mainly of travelogues in the realm of food. Since 1985 he has presented 18 series and written 20 top-selling books. Set in unusual locations, Far Flung Floyd is a gastronomic voyage exploring the diversity of Asian cuisines, cultures, languages and landscapes. Far Flung Floyd is a seven part exploration of Asian food and lifestyles filmed in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand. With a special esoteric flamboyance, Keith Floyd makes a gastronomic voyage to discover the diversity of Asian cuisines, as well as the distinct differences in language, culture, geography and tradition in South East Asia. His entertaining demonstrations of food preparation take Floyd to locations as diverse as fishing boats, mobile food kitchens and beaches to the most famous restaurants in the Far East, his guests ranging from local families to national celebrities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Famoyant Floyd 3 Sep 2009
Hello fellow Gastro-noughts. You'll hear that Floyd phrase a couple of times in this DVD. Those of you who like Keith Floyd as the pioneering TV chef who brought the history of the architecture and ingredients of each region he cooks in are in with a treat! I say this because of a few reasons, not firstly because he really was "the first TV chef/cook to make preparing food a delight to watch" Yes, the Fanny Craddock's & Delia Smiths did a very commendable job on ingredients & measures to achieve a splendid dish but Floyd took things to a whole new level in the mid 1980's.

If you've ever looked on You Tube for Floyd sketches you'll see that there's one or two at the most and so this DVD is a "must" to see the legend that is Floyd.

If you like your TV chefs past or present you will certainly like this DVD, especially if you're interested in the history and culture if ingredients, how they got there and why. I recently watched Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey, a very good programme, however, even though it was 15 years on from Far Flung Floyd and by the same director (David Pritchard) Stein talks about the same ingredients, culture & preparation that rarely change in dozens of years. I really enjoyed the whole Rick Stein series, I enjoy others such a Jamie Oliver et al, however Floyd left out all the snazzy out of focus camera shots and kept to the plot, food, ingredients, where they came from and how history shaped the way we eat today in Spain, Italy, Greece or the UK. His delivery is entertaining and humorous. I am disabled and unfortunately can't cook myself, however, it was always Floyd who caught my eye as a very inspirational character who could make cooking fun & educational.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique style and presentation. 8 April 2009
I very seldom cater for the numbers that Keith Floyd does. Buying recipe items for just two can be expensive. However with his unique style and presentation Keith is always entertaining. As an ideas source he is brilliant. Even at his worst he is still very good. Carry on Keith so we can follow you on your travels about the globe.
