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.
The chefs residencies are taking place over November and December 2021 and include:
18th and 20th November
Pippa is a cancer research scientist turned cook, best known for her noodle-based dishes.
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.
25th and 27th November
Formerly of Brat, Scully St James and Kerridge’s Bar and Grill, he is now the much-hyped underground chef behind the sell-out Whyte Rushen Burger.
He is influenced by chicken shops and off-licences just as much as his Michelin starred background.
2nd and 3rd December
Ixta is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller Flavour, which she co-wrote with Ottolenghi.
She taught herself to cook by absorbing food traditions and flavours from Italy to Brazil. Code Hospitality named her one of the most influential women in food.
9th and 11th December
Inspired by seasonality and good ingredients, Joe is a trained restaurant chef turned food and travel photographer.
A vegetarian since he was 10-years old, he has developed a deep understanding of flavoursome vegetable cookery.
