Blumenthal on classic Floyd moments


Chef Heston Blumenthal has paid tribute to Keith Floyd and said he changed the face of television cooking.

The celebrity chef died in Dorset, at the age of 65. In July he revealed he was suffering from bowel cancer.

Floyd's unique cooking style, fuelled by copious amounts of wine and humour, captured the public imagination and paved the way for a generation of TV chefs.
