Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is a three-Michelin-starred establishment and its chef patron Clare Smyth MBE is the only female chef in the UK to have maintained the three-star accolade.
In a different Ramsay-owned restaurant, the he appointed Kim Woodward as head chef of York & Albany. Woodward also works on various other projects and demos with Ramsay, travelling to Sardinia for Gordon Ramsay at Fortevillage and Gordon Ramsay at Castel Monastero in Tuscany.
Meanwhile, Heddon Street Kitchen has a new head chef. Daughter of renowned pastry chef Michelle Tampakis, Maria Tampakis is making waves in the London food scene.
More recently, the newly opened London House at Battersea Square has named Anna Haugh as head chef. She has gained quite a following in the culinary world, working her way up from pastry chef at L’Ecrivain, and as sous chef at Pied à Terre. With the industry clearly making a strong shift, one can only expect more female chefs dominating Michelin-starred establishments globally.
