Early in her career, she trained in some of the most celebrated kitchens in the world, including Alain Ducasse's Le Louis XV in Monaco. She also worked under Gordon Ramsay for 13 years where she was Chef Patron before opening her own restaurant in 2017 - Core by Clare Smyth in Notting Hill, London.
Clare has received numerous awards and accolades including the World’s Best Female Chef award by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. She is an active member of the international culinary community and has been recognised for her services to the hospitality industry with a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2013.
“I named my first restaurant ‘Core’ as it is from the heart, a seed of something new, and has strong ties to nature. As the new restaurant will build upon the success of Core, it seems fitting to call it ‘Oncore’ — a play on the word ‘encore’ meaning a follow-on performance demanded by the audience.” - Clare Smyth
