James Martin has paid tribute to chef Alastair Little, following the sad news he has died at the age of 72. Taking to Twitter, Saturday Kitchen star James called Alastair a “legend”.

“So sad to hear the news one of the true godfathers of British food has passed away,” he wrote.

“I had the honour of first meeting Alastair Little at college as a young kid and later doing stints at Frith Street which was a Mecca for all foodies at the time…later on Ready Steady Cook and beyond. 

“The man was a legend in so many’s eyes and mine and my thoughts go to his family and friends. 

“Chef,  you are and always will be a legend to me and many others. RIP,” he signed off, in view of his 720.3k followers. 

Sue replied: “That is sad news indeed. Condolences to his family and friends”.

Tracey added: “So sad to hear this news. I used to love him and Rowley Leigh doing their ‘spot’ on Nigel Slater’s programme back in the day. He will be greatly missed.”
