    Always enjoyed watching Gary cook when he was on the telly. Calm and controlled not loud and brash like some other header (you know, rhymes with Shamsey). Always with the risotto though was Gary, I don’t think a TV appearance went by without the risotto. RIP.

    Jamie Oliver Instagrammed he ” passed away after a tragic fall ” then hurriedly deleted this.
    I wonder why ?

        I dunno.
        I’m always interested in knowing how celebs departed this mortal coil.
        Makes them mere mortals.
        Had many a nice meal in Gazza’s Southbank gaff and he seemed a decent cove who liked a drink or three.
        I often wondered where he disappeared to and it seems the desert.

  4. some old queen

    I remember when the Dublin restaurant opened- a place to be seen. There was drag queens elbowing with rugby players to get a front seat- the drag queens usually won btw because they played dirty- full on Celtic tiger- sporting the new outfit from the shopping trip to New York- remember when this time of year that was a thing?

    Anyways- RIP- so young- so as the song goes- enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think.

      You obviously weren’t there. The restaurant was a flop. Besides the lousy location, the service (as I experienced it) was utterly dismal. A 250 seat restaurant with a Capel St address. Ironically, D7 would work now. Probably.

      Bad luck.

    I saw a product , just yesterday, with his name on it. I thought to myself, gosh, wonder what became of him…. Bizarre.
