Geoff, our beloved chef, was full of life, charm and 101lbs of fun! Bursting with love, with a wicked sense of humour and a talent for cooking, Geoff was one of those people who made an impression and once met, was never forgotten.
Sadly, Geoff passed away after a short illness in February 2018, leaving behind his beloved husband Bobby, and his pride and joy; Redfearns. Located in Wincanton, Somerset, Redfearns was a café by day and Thai restaurant by night and Geoff and his team worked tirelessly to make it a success.
Over the years, Geoff compiled a simple red ring binder of his recipe notes. A well-thumbed, food stained, bible of recipes he held dear, but just a snapshot of the many he held in his head. What better way to honour and remember Geoff than by coming together and recreating these recipes, publishing this book and keeping his spirit alive. And so, ‘The Naked Geoff: 101lbs of Grub’ is a publication of his notes and recipes. All of the funds raised from the sale of these books will support ‘The Growing Space’, a Wincanton charity Geoff held close to his heart and indeed from where Geoff sourced many of his restaurant ingredients.
Geoff’s friends and family have come together to cook his recipes, interpret his notes where needed and provide suggestions to fill any gaps in method or ingredients. We hope you are inspired by the recipes in this book and enjoy cooking and sampling your creations; and while you do, be sure to take a moment to raise a glass to Geoff Redfearn, 101lbs of fun!
