5.0 out of 5 stars A great look into the life and times of Floyd, 5 Nov 2009
This review is from: Stirred But Not Shaken: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
I eagerly awaited this book and was not disappointed at all - it's a great insight into the life and times of one of my all times heroes - Keith Floyd. The book details his early career, rise to fame, time when work was either non-existant or scarce and when the demons of life became too much. Some of the book is well known and previously documented but much was a revelation to me and some was down right uncomfortable to read and bordering on being far too honest for his own good.
It is with great regret that this book came out as Keith's life ended but is a fitting tribute to the man who made cookery interesting, honest and fun - today's chef's just do not come close.
This man is the reason I enjoy cooking so much today - no buggering about, just good wholesome regional cooking without frills or fancy.
My one regret is having been in the presence of Keith I never had the bottle to get his autograph.

Rest in Peace Keith and thanks for the fun, the food and the memories.............

I was very fond of the great master of cooking, he had a great personality not only when performing but also in real life. I met him several years apart but he remembered me on the second occasion ( I did get his autograph) sadly missed

I know he liked a drink, but I am sure you wouldn't have had to give him a whole bottle in exchange for his autograph. Surely if you had bought him a drink, it would have been enough.
