Rhodes wrote the recipe for chefs on TV
BEFORE Gordon Ramsay started throwing pots around, before Jamie Oliver became the Naked Chef and Nigella even considered becoming a domestic goddess, there was Gary Rhodes. Rhodes (left) was a trailblazer when it came to TV chefs. His cheeky demeanour, exciting recipes and ever-so-slightly rock and roll demeanour were genuinely intoxicating, and entirely new. That his shows, restaurants and food became such a huge inspiration for a generation of new cooks tells its own, wonderful story. His death at just 59 feels like a robbery. But what a legacy to leave.
