Chef patron - clare smyth mbe

Recently awarded MBE and Chef of The Year in the Good Food Guide 2013, Clare Smyth’s credentials are exemplary and her steep rise to Chef Patron at the three Michelin starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is not surprising. Clare’s devotion to her craft and her uncompromising standards, meticulous work ethic are just two of the reasons why she remains the first and only female chef to run a restaurant with this accolade in the UK.

Born in Northern Ireland, Clare moved to England at 16 to learn the skills which would eventually make her a world class chef. On completing her studies Clare’s thirst for knowledge drove her to stage under many influential chefs around the world.

In 2002 Clare joined Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and worked her way up the ranks to become Senior Sous Chef. Clare left London in 2005 to gain experience abroad and joined the kitchen at Alain Ducasse’s renowned Le Louis XV in Monte Carlo. Soon after returning to London and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in 2008 she was promoted to the position of Head Chef.
