Join us for a truly special lunch with Pierre Koffman. There’s no doubt that it’s Pierre Koffmann, the three Michelin-starred chef, who is the grand-père of French cuisine in Britain. 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 cooking taught him by his grandmother, Camille. This venture won him three Michelin stars. Pierre’s next move was to The Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge where, after a brief absence, he returned in 2009. True to his roots, Pierre continues to serve the classic provincial French food that has become his hallmark.
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. 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.
Tickets include an Aperitif, a Michelin-starred three-course lunch, coffee and petits fours, as well as a signed copy of Classic Koffmann.
