Winner 'Best French Cuisine Book' - Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2016

Finalist 'Cooking from a Professional Point of View' - James Beard Foundation Awards 2017


Classic Koffmann offers a masterclass in all that’s best in the French culinary tradition and will most certainly be the must-have cookery book of the season.

There's no doubt that it's Pierre Koffmann, the three Michelin-starred chef, who is the granddaddy of French cuisine in Britain. Now celebrating 50 years in the business, the self-effacing Pierre has been coaxed out of the kitchen just long enough to write this superlative collection of his classic recipes.

Arriving in Britain in 1970 and expecting to stay only a few months, PIERRE KOFFMANN is still here. Work at Le Gavroche led to his appointment as Head Chef at The Waterside Inn, where he helped the Roux brothers achieve two Michelin stars.
