Pierre Koffmann – The Master Chef
Born in Tarbes in Gascony, Pierre Koffmann moved to London from France in 1972, taking a position at Michel and Albert Roux’s Le Gavroche. Within six months he was sous chef and soon after was appointed head chef of the Waterside Inn at Bray. At the Inn he was free to cook the food he wanted, and during his five years there, helped the Waterside achieve two Michelin stars.
In 1977 Pierre opened his own restaurant, La Tante Claire, in Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea. Within six years he had been awarded the maximum three Michelin stars, making him one of only three chefs in the United Kingdom to achieve such an accolade. Originally known as `L’ours` (The Bear) in the kitchen, he has mentored some of the greatest names in gastronomy: Tom Aikens, Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White, Marcus Wareing, Bruno Loubet, Tom Kitchin and Jason Atherton, to name but a few. His protégés have now amassed more than 20 Michelin stars between them…
