Congratulations to Pierre Koffmann who was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at AA Hospitality Awards 2016, on 26th September.
The award comes as Pierre celebrates a landmark 50 years in the kitchen this year. The AA Awards describe Koffmann as "one of the undisputed heavyweights of the British restaurant scene", and recognised his great impact on the British food industry since the 1970s.
"During his career, he has trained a number of chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White, Marcus Wareing, Tom Aikens, Bruno Loubet, Jason Atherton and Tom Kitchin. With so many culinary giants working under him over the years, Koffmann’s ongoing influence on the British restaurant scene is immeasurable."
