Pierre Koffmann celebrated the 35th anniversary of the opening of his legendary three-star restaurant La Tante Claire in London. Pierre Koffmann was the third chef in the UK to be awarded three Michelin stars. To celebrate this and three and half decades of culinary legacy, Pierre Koffmann had organised two special Le Réunion des Chefs dinners at his current restaurant at The Berkeley Hotel, cooked by Pierre
Koffmann and nine of his protégés.
The first dinner took place on Sunday 11 November 2012 with Bruno Loubet of Bistrot Bruno Loubet in London, Eric Chavot of Brasserie Chavot at the Westbury Hotel in London, Raphael Duntoye of La Petite Maison, Tom Kitchin of The Kitchin in Edinburgh and William Curley, London chocolatier extraordinaire. The second dinner on Monday 12 November 2012 was cooked by Eric Chavot, Paul Rhodes of Rhodes Bakeries, Helena Puolakka of Skylon restaurant and Claude Lamarche of The Arts Club (all in London) and me.
The six-course men was with champagne and canapés, £100 per person or £165 with matching wines for each course, with only 100 covers for the night.
