The eccentric but highly acclaimed British Chef Keith Floyd has made himself a household name with TV audiences throughout the world by intuitive cooking in odd locations, interspersed with entertaining comments and conversations.
Floyd has branded himself a "gastronaut" to explain his style and approach, and his series consist mainly of travelogues in the realm of food. Since 1985 he has presented 18 series and written 20 top-selling books.
Floyd's mission is to discover the varied tastes and the rich regional diversity of Italian cuisine. The eccentric chef abandons all accepted conventions as he forays into the best restaurants and the most luscious vineyards. Amidst the classic scenery Floyd prepares exquisite dishes including squid ink tagliatelle and Tuscan wild boar.
