The team at Glen Dye have invited a number of city-based chefs to join them in the glen for a few weeks of great food and drink.

They have challenged them to cook over the fire, forage for seasonal ingredients and find new perspectives on their food as they cook in new surroundings at the heart of the 15,000-acre private estate.

The chefs will host supper clubs and food demos in The Byre and Garden Camp. There will be hiking, campfires, wild swimming, dog walking and stargazing, and guests will learn in the company of the experts.

What chefs are attending and when?

The chefs residencies are taking place over November and December 2021 and include:

She has been learning about East and South-East Asian cookery for over 15 years and has just launched her second cookbook, Bowls and Broths.
