When the idea first came about, and Julia suggested making it a reality, I don't think we would have ever expected the response we have had. It just demonstrates the amount of love and respect for the enigmatic Keith Floyd. We have had entries from around the world, recipes re-lived, adapted or new ones created in his memory. Everyone has done such an amazing job, both myself and Julia would like to thank you for taking part and making this event so great.
We also extended the deadline, due to the fabulous people at Absolute Press giving three copies of 'Floyds Food' for the top three posts. So here we are. The deadline has passed. Julia and myself have deliberated over who the top three posts are. This is it...... There are the top three posts, each winning a copy of 'Floyds Food'. Congratulations!!!
Going With My Gut - Kenyan Goat Feast
Foodycat - Jambalaya
Anyone For Seconds - Coq au Vin
