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.

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
