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..
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.

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
So sad, beautiful man...

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...
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 this chap said , he said to the S.C can you tell G.R the answer is no !

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.

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.
