  2. Sad news.

    I really enjoy making his bolognese sauce with the 50/50 beef and pork mince.

  3. Mrs OS loved watching his cookery programmes. Bought her one of his recipe books two years ago , and she promptly put a stone and a half on me..

  4. Remember watching him make that he learnt to do it for hundreds of people at once as a cook in the Italian Navy.
    Bet he didn't say
    Solo una salsiccia!

  5. Well.
    Two greedy Italians are now down to one.
    I liked his sense of humour.

  6. He was a great cook and seemed to be a sound bloke as well. Those often don't go together, so it's a bit sad to hear of his passing.

  7. Lovely man - 4 of us were eating in one of his restaurants and he came over sat down with us. He talked us through each course; ingredients, preparation, interesting recommendations and telling funny anecdotes about pretty much everything. RIP.

  8. Sad to hear, a big character but with a passing relationship with the "black dog" I seem to recall?
    RIP

  9. I seem to recall a particularly horrendous suicide attempt a few years ago. I believe he tried to stab himself to death.
    Very sad as he seemed like a genuinely warm man.

  11. I read some of a book he wrote or extracts and he tried to kill himself a fair few times i think . Sad to hear he has passed , watching his programmes made me think of the pleasures in life of a good simple meal. Him and Genaro were funny as hell to watch as well.

    I can't read a recipe that mentions olive oil without thinking of him insisting that it be "good olive oil."
