Jane bought me a copy Kitchen Confidential (a hardback!) when it first came out and before I had heard of him. I loved it.
Mum got me his Les Halles Cookbook (a hardback!) for my birthday in 2005. I love it.
I have read and/or watched everything of his ever since.
It is hard to believe he is gone. I am not going to link to any speculation about the circumstances of his passing.
