Farewell Floyd: The Round-up

James and I have had such a hard time choosing three winning entries from all the fantastic ones that came in for our tribute to Keith Floyd, the ‘Farewell Floyd’ food blogging event. We asked you to cook a classic or adapted Floyd recipe or a recipe of your own design inspired by Keith Floyd. Here’s a round-up of all the posts:

‘White Onion Soup – A tribute to Keith Floyd’ from Annes Kitchen

white onion soup - picniked

‘Chicken Breast with Beetroot Sauce – Farewell Floyd!’ from Maison Mattmoo


‘Keith Floyd tribute: Welsh rarebit makeover’ from Weekend Carnivore


‘Shrimp, Mango and Ginger Stir Fry’ from Apple Crumbles


‘Floyd’s Tabbouleh’ from A Wee Bit of Cooking


‘Farewell Floyd’ from The Princess and the Recipe


‘Keith Floyd’s Beef Bourgignon’ from Them Apples

‘Farewell Floyd – Jambalaya’ from Foodycat


‘Farewell to Floyd’ from Jo’s Kitchen


‘Chicken Tagine with Butternut Basmati Rice’ from Pan Gravy Kadai Curry

‘Kenyan Goat Feast – For Farewell Floyd: Food Blogging Event’ from Going With My Gut


‘Keith Floyd’s Lapin aux pruneaux (Sauté of wild rabbit with prunes and Armagnac)’ from Joanna’s Food


Aren’t they all brilliant posts? We found it incredibly difficult to judge, I can tell you. I wish we could give prizes to everyone but we can at least give three people a prize. The winning entries are:

‘Kenyan Goat Feast – For Farewell Floyd: Food Blogging Event’ from Going With My Gut

‘Farewell Floyd – Jambalaya’ from Foodycat

‘Coq au Vin – A Tribute to Keith Floyd’ from Anyone for Seconds?


Well done to everyone. The winning bloggers will receive a copy of the newly re-printed ‘Floyd’s Food’, Keith Floyd’s first ever cookbook, published by Absolute Press. With thanks to Absolute Press for donating the prizes.

    That goat feast is amazing! I would have been terribly upset had that not been in the list of winners.

    I loved Keith Floyd…watchin him cook on his travels was always so much fun. I have a little book he wrote on Thai recipes ( a penguin mini classic) – I've treasured it for over a decade and learnt to make curry pastes from it. I wish I knew about this event. Oh well, great tribute to the man
