There's no doubt that it's Pierre Koffmann, the three Michelin-starred chef, who is the granddaddy of French cuisine in Britain. 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. Ranging as you would expect from Entées to Desserts, and everything in between, Classic Koffmann is a worthy successor to Pierre's Memories of Gascony, which earned him the prestigious Glenfiddich Award in 1990. As if its collection of over 100 star recipes from the master chef weren't enough, Classic Koffmann is also beautifully illustrated with photography by master photographer, David Loftus. And, since Pierre Koffmann has been described as 'the chef of chefs' and 'the chef all other chefs look up to', it's no surprise that many of his protégé the likes of Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsey, Bruno Loubet, Tom Aikens, William Curley, Helena Puolakka, Tom Kitchin, Eric Chavot, Paul Rhodes have declared themselves 'honoured' to contribute to this epoch-making book. This younger generation of chefs all culinary luminaries in their own right have added their own special stories of their training with Pierre, the insights they gained from him and, of course, their paeans of praise for the man who set them on their path in the world of cooking. 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

Pierre Koffmann's Memories of Gascony is the story of how one of the most influential chefs of our time first learned to love food. With recipes and reminiscences from his grandparents' home in rural Gascony, this is an intimate account of school holidays spent on the farm helping his grandfather to harvest and hunt, and learning to treasure seasonality, simplicity and the best ingredients at his grandmother's side. The finest of Gascony produce is here, with a focus on simplicity. The recipes stand the test of time and speak to the food tastes and trends of today. While you read the charming stories of everyday life on the farm, you'll devour the cuisine as you go along - dandelion salad with bacon and poached egg, grilled chicken with shallots and vinaigrette, and greengages in armagnac in Spring; chicken liver pate with capers, Bayonne ham tart with garlic, oeufs a la neige in Summer; roast hare with mustard and beetroot, salt cod cassoulet and quince jelly in Autumn; and fried eggs with foie gras, potato and bacon pie and tarte aux pruneaux in Winter. This is a book to learn, love and live from.

In Nostalgic Delights, award-winning chocolatier William Curley aims to recreate childhood memories and times gone, taking classic recipes and modernising them with his own, unique creations. Creating top-quality confectionary, cakes and patisserie is often seen as something only a trained professional can do, however with patisserie equipment now easily accessible to all, William hopes to produce a book where the reader can create at home and evoke their own nostalgic memories. William's ethos centres around using the best ingredients and techniques available, while making it accessible to the home cook. Some recipes are simple to make with minimal ingredients, such as the Hazelnut Rocher and Bakewell tarts.

William recreates the decadence once again in many of these recipes, such as a Black Forest Gateau or Blackcurrant Cheesecake. The book also touches on the comfort food that most of us grew up with, whether it be a Jammy Dodger, an Arctic Roll, or a Banana Split, William takes these to a whole other level!

There was a time where holding a recipe book meant following a magical recipe which let us into the secrets of how to transform ingredients into a delicious meal. When a perfect recipe would give us the best lemon custard ever. No questions asked. We would just follow the recipe. When I started my cooking apprenticeship, I was told that I should know, by heart, every single classic dish that made up French gastronomy. I should know my Sauce Choron from my Hollandaise. I should know what a Bercy garnish adds to a filet of Sole. I should be reverent to everything Escoffier had said and done. So I learnt it, and without realizing I became just another recipe follower. Then in 1993 I entered the kitchen of Alain Ducasse, and for the next two years I slowly rediscovered the fundamentals of cooking by trusting my instincts and intuition rather than following a written recipe. First I realised that cooking was all about the original ingredient, something Escoffier had forgotten to mention. Then I realised that the best ingredients are almost always the ones that are local that can be found naturally around you. But vitally I realised that the most important 'ingredient' of all is trusting your instincts.
