Rip - Gary Rhodes
« on: Nov 27, 2019, 10:25:01 AM »
The TV chef Gary Rhodes has died at the young age of 59. What I liked about him was that he promoted British food. I cannot recall when he was last on TV (ignoring repeats).


RIP Gary.

I think that is so very sad..
 He was one of the first (younger) chefs to appear on TV.. Noted for his spikey hair.. We watched him many a time..
 
Don't think of a caterpillar dying..Think of a butterfly living.

He always reminded me of Nigel Kennedy. I think i once saw one of them on a chat show and thought it was the other guy.

It seems he died following a fall but no other details were given. I remember Jim Rodford of the Zombies died a few years ago following a fall. You seem to shrug them off under 50 but do damage over.

Veronica and I used to love those programmes, not that they ever influenced our own cooking - they stood on their own merits as entertainment

He was entertaining and interesting. Sad news.

Apologies for this. It appears that Jamie Oliver tweeted this and it was picked up by a few newspapers which published it online. Mr Oliver has since deleted his tweet. There is some speculation this morning but as I have seen two different stories I am not repeating them. I trust we see Mr Oliver offering an apology!
