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.

Ranging - as you would expect - from EntrÉes to Desserts, and everything in between,Classic Koffmannis a worthy successor to Pierre'sMemories of Gascony, which earned him the prestigious Glenfiddich Award in 1990.

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. In 1977 Pierre opened La Tante Claire in Chelsea, where he introduced Londoners to the Gascon coo...

Editorial Reviews

'It’s timeless... You’d have a wonderful year - and learn a lot - if you just decided to cook your way through this.’ - Diana Henry, Daily TelegraphBest Books of 2016 - 'The life’s work of OFM’s 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award winner, a celebration of an extraordinary 50 years in the kitchen. Here are signature dishes from perhaps the most influential chef in the country, with insights from his proteges.' - The Observer‘You won’t get another man like Koffmann. He walked in and the kitchen went silent. He was completely and utterly in control of everything he did. The things he executed to get flavours out of ingredients were incredible – he made me fall in love with cooking.’   - Tom Kitchin, City AM
