Rhodes wrote the recipe for chefs on TV

Scottish Daily Mail - - EMMA COWING -

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.
