Back in the late 80's and early 90's, while living & working in London, I had the privilege - and it was really a privilege - to be a semi regular customer at Pierre Koffmann's now legendary "La Tante Claire" in Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea.
(Gordon Ramsey would take over the site when Koffman semi retired..
Mind you, it was not cheap, but e.g. lunches were not more expensive than in many other nearby restaurants. "La Tante Claire" was probably the closest to a perfect restaurant that I have ever experienced. The food was out of this world - (And at the time I was a Chef De Partie working for his greatest foe Marco Pierre White-) who could forget Koffman's signature dish?, Stuffed pig's trotter with chicken mousseline, sweetbreads and morels Wow! - the service always friendly and highly professional and the interior beuatifully decorated in Art Deco style. No wonder that "La Tante Clair" was to become one of the few British restaurants with three Michelin stars.

I just love the recipe to one of Koffmann's finest specialities, Souffle aux pistaches, Great for dinner parties as its pritty simple but looks & tastes out of this world....

If you are interested in more of Pierre Koffman's recipes, "La Tante Claire, Recipes of a Masterchef" is a treasure trove. In the book Koffmann also offers interesting glimpses into his childhood in France and his way to the Michelin top stardom. Unfortunately the books seems to be out of print, but if you are lucky, you can find used copies on Amazon or even an unused new one, well worth the investment, it really is a true classic....

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 28 April 2014

I was trained in this style of cuisine at college, along with that of Marco Pierre-White etc. It is an essential book for a keen cook or gourmand, and certainly for young chefs. His food was pivitol in the gastronomic development of the UK, it also has a wonderful narrative (like his Memoires of Gascony).
