Leg­endary chefs Pierre Koff­mann and Marco Pierre White are join­ing forces to launch a new restau­rant in Bath. The Koff­mann & Mr White’s brasserie, which is due to open at The Abbey Ho­tel in Septem­ber, will be the first time that two three Miche­lin-starred chefs have teamed up to open a restau­rant to­gether. A piv­otal fig­ure of the Lon­don restau­rant scene, Koff­mann has been cook­ing for over 50 years. He opened his first restau­rant, La Tante Claire, in 1977 and won three Miche­lin stars. He also men­tored some of the best-known chefs in the in­dus­try, with pro­tégés in­clud­ing Gor­don Ram­say, Marcus Ware­ing and Ja­son Ather­ton. White be­gan his ca­reer as a com­mis chef with the Roux broth­ers at Le Gavroche be­fore go­ing on to work for Koff­mann at La Tante Claire in 1984 be­fore open­ing his own restau­rant four years later. The menu at Koff­mann & Mr White’s brasserie will in­clude Gas­con and Bri­tish clas­sics.
