Farewell Floyd

James and I have been getting lots of brilliant entries into our ‘Farewell Floyd’ food blogging event. For my own part I decided to cook Keith’s Welsh Rarebit. It’s certainly a classier version of cheese on toast and well worth the extra effort.


The closing date for the event was yesterday but we’ve decided to extend it for a week after Absolute Press offered a fantastic prize: a copy of the recently republished ‘Floyd’s Food’ – Keith’s first ever book – for the best 3 entries.

Absolute Press published this very first book of Keith’s after its founder, Jon Croft, met him in his restaurant in Bristol and collaborated with him on the book. I feel very proud and humbled to be working with the very same publisher who will be printing ‘A Slice of Cherry Pie’ next year.

To be in for a chance to win a copy of ‘Floyd’s Food’, pour the wine, get the pan out and cook up a tribute to the one and only Keith Floyd. Closing date Sunday 25th October. For more details click here click here.

    I loved Keith Floyd. He was amazing–I loved his adventures aboard his boat–he was in the middle of nowhere and could cook up a gourmet meal. I was very impressed. RIP.

    I would definitely go try this classier version of cheese on toast. What goes better than bread and cheese, right?

    Making me hungry…
