Memories of Gascony is the story of how one of the world's most influential and inspiring chefs of our time first learned to love food and to cook from the heart. With recipes and reminiscences from his grandparents' farmhouse kitchen in rural Gascony, this is the food that first inspired him to become a chef, the food of the French countryside and his childhood.
The simple, seasonal, traditional French country cooking he watched his grandmother Camille prepare and ate as a child - from dandelion salad with bacon and poached egg, quail wrapped in vine leaves and confit de canard, to prune tart, creme brulee and greengages in Armagnac - this is the food that inspires him to this day.

Pierre Koffman has been at the heart of fine cuisine in Britain for over forty years. After working as a young chef in France, in Strsbourg and Toulon, Koffmann arrived in London in 1970 to work under Michel and Albert Roux at Le Gavroche. When Pierre and his late wife Annie opened La Tante Claire in 1977, it was the start of a residency at the top of the London culinary world that would span four decades. Within six years of opening, La Tante Claire had its third Michelin star, setting new standards of cooking and creating extraordinary dishes from classically simple ingredients.
"If you do not own a copy of Pierre Koffmann's glorious Memories of Gascony your cookbook collection is not complete. Brilliant to read; even better to cook from." - Jay Rayner, Observer "'Pierre the Bear' as he is known to me, and to the many other chefs who have been lucky enough to work in a kitchen under his tutelage, is an extraordinarily talented man." - Gordon Ramsay "A great chef who has never forgotten his roots." - Bill Knott, Financial Times "Pierre Koffmann has a unique talent and I have always admired how he cooks from the heart." - Tom Kitchin "Pierre Koffmann is a giant of the kitchen, and his shadow looms larger than anyone else's. Almost every decent chef I can think of learned most of what he knows from Pierre." - Giles Coren, The Times "Pierre Koffmann is a legend." - Daniel Boulud "Pierre is one of the world's great, instinctive chefs, with a rare ability to combine gutsiness and refinement in his cooking." - Heston Blumenthal
