Two of the world’s top chefs, Clare Smyth and Anne-Sophie Pic, will be joining forces to host a dinner in celebration of International Women’s Day. Taking place at the acclaimed Core by Clare Smyth, the event follows on from their hugely successful collaboration dinner last year.
Both Clare and Anne-Sophie have worldwide culinary acclaim. Clare remains the first and only female chef to run a restaurant with three Michelin stars in the UK, and she was named The World’s Best Female Chef by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Anne-Sophie, meanwhile, currently holds eight stars across her four restaurants, and her London restaurant La Dame de Pic received two stars in the 2020 Michelin Guide.
Combining their exceptional talent and creativity, the pair will put together a six-course menu featuring a selection of their signature dishes. The evening will begin with a selection of canapés followed by a first course of Anne-Sophie’s steak tartare, seasoned with mustard and Wagyu beef emulsion. Other dishes include a Cornish turbot with smoked mussels, a main course of Rhug Estate fallow deer, and a Yorkshire rhubarb dessert with cherry leaves meringue. On the drinks side, Core’s Head Sommelier Gareth Ferreira and La Dame de Pic’s Director of Wine Jan Konetzki have created a unique wine pairing menu sourced from leading female wine-makers and producers.
‘It is an honour to have Anne-Sophie and her team join us in the kitchen at Core. I look forward working with her to create an amazing experience for our guests celebrating women in the hospitality industry,’ says Clare Smyth.
‘I shared an amazing time with Clare Smyth last year,’ says Anne-Sophie. ‘I welcomed her in La Dame de Pic London and let her be part of my universe; now it’s my turn to be heading to Core and be a part of hers. The evening is so meaningful as we celebrate women in the hospitality industry and I’m thrilled to be working together with Clare again.’
