Description

Keith Floyd started out in a hotel kitchen in Bristol. He made and lost fortunes, was married four times, and dealt with a level of fame that bemused him. Now, in this revealing memoir, he reflects upon his colourful career. As irrepressible, funny and charming as the man himself, this is a must-read for anyone who loves life, food, women... and a quick slurp.

Professional reviews

"'Keith Floyd is just the most brilliant food presenter in history.' JAMIE OLIVER 'A natural cook of great skill and restaurateur of effervescent charm who changed the course of cookery on TV.' THE GUARDIAN 'Britain's first international celebrity chef had a happy ending, too, in that he died after a slap-up five-course lunch. But, despite its endless stories about high living and meeting famous people, this is definitely not a feel good book. Floyd blames his four marriages, his umpteen unsuccessful business ventures and his drinking on the pressures of celebrity, but I'm not sure. I was once dispatched to interview him on location in Italy, and he turned up for lunch with his wife, his literary agent, his PR, his photographer, his sponsor and five hangers-on. He was a chancer - a good cook and a great entertainer, but not exactly what I'd call a loveable man.' SUE ARNOLD, THE GUARDIAN"
