There’s plenty of Italy in one of the most popular restaurants in London, one to watch even according to the 50Best: Core by Clare Smyth. She was born in Northern Ireland in 1978 and spent her professional existence in three-starred kitchens and the like, as chef-patron for Gordon Ramsey in the Scotsman’s flagship restaurant, on Royal Hospital Road, in Chelsea, London. She arrived at 24, in 2002, and then moved for three years to Louis XV in Monte Carlo with Alain Ducasse plus shorter internships at the Roux’s Waterside Inn and at French Laundry and Per Se, on the two coasts of the United States, with Thomas Keller. She then returned “home”, to Ramsay’s, in 2008. If when she left for her first solo adventure, in 2016, the restaurant still had the highest ranking for the Red Guide, a good part of the merit goes to her, an iron woman.
