Nigel Mackenzie, inventor of the banoffee pie, has died:
It's strange that they don't mention his age or hardly any other details.
Now you made me check. The Telegraph already published a "proper" obit a couple of days ago:
But, the food section, for some reason, decided to write another one. Maybe they were annoyed at the spelling of the name of that pie.
Now that's a proper obit and actually gives details of his accomplishments as a restaurateur other than the invention of the banoffee pie, although in the new obit they constantly mis-spell the name of the pie.
I always thought it was more popular over here in the US than it was in the UK given the it's sickly sweet and a couple of bites of it makes your teeth itch.
