Cooking with the Great Keith Floyd

12 Aug

Before Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay, there was Keith Floyd. Floyd was a rock n’ roll chef from the UK who hung out with punk rockers like the Stranglers (who provided his TV show’s theme song, “Peaches”). He was quite popular on the BBC and PBS a decade or more back. I haven’t heard much from him lately.

Seek out this LP/CD … really good stuff!

Watch the Stranglers perform Burt Bacharach’s “Walk on By”

I found this clip on You Tube (see top of this blog) — it’s pretty engaging and the coastal scenery ain’t bad either. Keith has obviously aged a bit (he’ll be 65 this December), but he still has that limey swagger and dry sense of humor. Rock on, Keith Floyd. You are still “spot on” in our book, lad.
