    Thanks to him I always cook with wine, and sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Another legend gone, guess he got his just desserts

    In all seriousness, it's always a shame, condolances to the friends and family

    Damn! I wonder what will happen to the wine industry now, surely their profits will plummet :p

    RIP

    I'll always remember his Pipérade episode where the French lady whose house it was being filmed in told him his food was rubbish. All the time he's cooking he’s translating all the abuse she’s giving him. Finishes the recipe and she says to him “look, I saw how you cooked that, I know it’s going to be awful” tastes it and says something like "it needs salt, it needs pepper, it needs herbs!" Then she cooks him a proper one.

    He tastes it and says “yes, she’s right, mine looks like scrambled eggs with ratatouille and tastes like it, hers is much better”.


    Legend

    RIP - Was sad watching last night's show, seeing how frail he was at that point. Seemed like the stresses of working abroad/travelling drove him to drink more and more.

    He was only on TV last night!
    I think that visit by Keith Allen finished him off
    He lived without any great regrets, and smoked and drank too much ''because I want to''
    RIP

    I fondly remember that episode where he wrapped that fish in tin foil and cooked it on his car's engine :D

    Oh no! :(

    I was watching the documentary on him last night, he didn't look too good I must say. I can't believe it! A legend. :(

    RIP.
