The chocolate glaze. Wow. Time to take them out. So let’s lift out these beautiful rashers.
Look at that. There’s endless combinations that you can

old favourites.

  1. Gary … you will be remembered, not only for your food, but for your likability, genuineness, and what a lovely sweetheart. Someone of my own generation. It was refreshing to see a guy with his punk hairstyle, enjoying what he does. You was respected by many. RIP

  2. When I left home and had to learn to cook, Gary Rhodes was a real inspiration – I even ended up working as a chef for a while. RIP

  3. Oh so so sad..lovely guy so kind and gentle natured, an inspiration for many young chefs starting out in their careers. A joy to watch, r.i.p Gary, forever in our hearts gone too soon..

  4. He was a legendary star in cooking world. Huge condolences, paryers and love to his family and friends on this time. Thank you. ❤

  5. I went to his restaurant and it was highly disappointing. The mash was grey and lumpy, the meat was tough and it was clearly sachet gravy. Then it was canned peaches for dessert. Disgusting, though I did like his hairstyle.

  6. In the early 1980s I lunched at the Castle Hotel in Taunton. Gary Rhodes was a young man, a virtual unknown, but his cooking that day knocked my socks off. I asked who he was; they told me his name. I followed his onward career path at the Capital Hotel in London and thereafter at the Greenhouse in Mayfair. He was a celebrity chef who exuded passion for his craft; the TV cameras and audiences lapped it up. No need for expletives-on-toast or PR stunts like handing back Michelin stars. He just did what he did. Family man and great British chef…

  7. Poor guy, what a shame , was a force of nature. What did i hear about jamie oliver tweeting about a tragic fall, somethings amiss. Dam tragic.Thoughts and prayers anyway ?

  8. Rest in Peace Gary. You probably the first chief that got me interesting in cooking after seeing you in adverts in the late 90s as a teen. Any one remember that Sunday magazine that came with the News of the World? I'm pretty sure Gary had a cooking column in it in the late 90s.

  9. I went to the Howard School in Gillingham, Gary was in my class, '71 through to '76. He was the only one in our year who would do the cookery lessons as an option instead of car mechanics, we used to call him a poof and take the piss something rotten, thats kind of how it was back then, sorry about that Gary, you really showed us.

  10. Was talking to an oven engineer yesterday,,,he had a few stories about celeb chefs..said he was standing with G.R and his sous chef…G.R ( so all 3 together) wanted a favour doing ,so he asked his S.C if the engineer would be willing to do whatever…so this chap said , he said to the S.C can you tell G.R the answer is no !
