Clare Smyth MBE grew up in Northern Ireland and went on to become the first British woman to be awarded three Michelin stars. She is the Chef Owner of Core by Clare Smyth in London, and Oncore by Clare Smyth in Sydney.

Clare has received numerous awards including an MBE for her contribution to UK gastronomy, as well as the title of the World's Best Female Chef by the World's 50 Best Restaurants, and three stars in the 2020 Michelin Guide for Great Britain & Ireland.

Since moving to England at the age of 16, she has worked with an uncompromising devotion to her craft, training with Alain Ducasse at Le Louis XV in Monaco, and working under Gordon Ramsay for nearly 14 years as Chef Patron of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay before opening her own restaurant, Core in Notting Hill.

She has appeared on MasterChef (UK and Australia), Netflix's The Final Table, Top Chef and The Late Show, as well as numerous international demos across the world.

Her anticipated debut book, Core will be published by Phaidon in July 2022, and tells the fascinating story of the journey and philosophy that led to her opening and running one of the finest restaurants in the world.
