Went to a book signing with him in Stockholm, he had a glas of redwine.

In 2009 he saw a documentary about his life with a friend, went upstairs and died in the sleep. 

Recommend all his cooking shows.

Agreed, sadly missed, a real character, & he liked the stranglers too, my favourite teenaged punk band....

Yup this guy and Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet.  Kerr always seem to have a glass of wine close at hand on the air.

True Gent and a Scholar of the first order, straight talker and yes he did like the Vino, God bless him.

 

Loved watching all his various cookery shows from around the world giving his own no nonsense slant on things

I still have his cook book and use occasionally 'Floyd on Fish.' While back in the UK I recall a radio interview where he told the tale of cooking a beer mat for a customer who always said on finishing his meal `'Very nice, but.....`'

Think this is recorded 1992, aired 1993. 

So 25 years ago, not any pictures from the ring road. 

Banrak - bophut road 

End of fisherman village road. 

ThalingNam Road. 

 

Nathon is correct, remember that FujiSign.
