Arriving in Britain in 1970 and expecting to stay only a few months, PIERRE KOFFMANN is still here. 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.
