To mark Pierre Koffmann's 50th year as a chef, here is a new paperback edition of his iconic, award-winning cookbook Memories of Gascony
About the Author
Pierre Koffmann has been at the heart of fine cuisine in Britain for nearly fifty years. After working as a young chef in France, Koffmann arrived in London in 1970 to work under Michel and Albert Roux at Le Gavroche and then the Waterside Inn. Within six years of opening, La Tante Claire had its third Michelin star, setting new standards for cooking and creating extraordinary dishes from classically simple ingredients, while also serving as an academy for many of today's culinary superstars. Between them Koffmann's protégés now boast over twenty Michelin stars in their own right. After a short-lived retirement, he returned to the kitchen at Koffmann's at The Berkeley, with a more relaxed, informal style and classic provincial French cooking. It is the food that first inspired him to become a chef, the food of the French countryside, the food of his grandparents' farmhouse kitchen in rural Gascony.

Contrary to some reviewers I did not see the recipes as difficult or requiring obscure ingredients. Many are useful one pot dishes. The illustrations are mouthwatering. I look forward to using it to refresh my cooking repertoire .
The book has a range of classic country french dishes , very rustic ,and for the home ,not for a modern Fine Resturant
I have had the pleasure of eating his food ,and meeting the great man too.
