Pierre Koffmann has received the Craft Guild of Chefs’ Special Achievement Award for ‘outstanding contribution to the industry’, at the association’s 17th annual awards ceremony last night.

Koffmann, who last year ran a pop-up restaurant on the roof of Selfridges​, received his award ahead of next month’s launch of his eponymous restaurant at The Berkeley Hotel​, his first in London since closing the three Michelin-starred La Tante Claire in 2002.

Thirteen additional chefs from across the catering industry were also recognised for their work at the ceremony held at the London Lancaster Hotel, with Sat Bains, chef proprietor of Restaurant Sat Bains, beating Hibiscus chef Claude Bosi and Trinity’s Adam Byatt to the Restaurant Chef of the Year title.

Chris and Jeff Galvin’s Galvin La Chappelle was also recognised, winning the New Restaurant of the Year award over Hix Restaurant and Kitchen W8, while Alistair Barlow from Peach Pubs’ The Fleece in Witney was deemed the Pub Chef of the Year.

Andrew Green, CGC chairman, said: “We had such a diverse mix of chefs to choose from this year, and each and every winner thoroughly deserves the kudos and prestige that comes with a Craft Guild of Chefs award,” said Andrew. “In football terms, they are officially elevated into the premier league.”
