A great character.   I went into one of his places once.  The menu was mouth-watering, but the price of the dried pasta in the shop was eye-watering...

Absolutely. :)

He’s been looking very poorly for a long time but sad that he went following a fall.

A knowledgeable and competent cook by vocation.

I've not read his books or eaten at 'his' establishments but he always seemed interested despite his battles with The Black Dog.

The man knew his mushrooms.

I wasn’t aware that he was a sufferer. I guess he handled it well.

His TV series, Two Greedy Italians, is worth watching, not just for the food but his love of Italy and to hear about his upbringing.

In view of the apparent non-fame of the gentleman in question, while not wanting to appear too harsh, wouldn't a more appropriate thread title be "old man dies"? (I had heard of him, BTW).
