To prove winter’s wonder, we invited a number of exceptional, city-based chefs to join us at Glen Dye for a few weeks of great food and drink.
Pippa came to Glen Dye and instantly became a favourite of ours. She cooked delicious noodles over the fire, taught our guests how to hand-pull noodles and then delivered a delicious feast in the warmth of The Byre. Read on to see the amazing menu that our guests enjoyed.
We hosted supper clubs and food demos in The Byre and Garden Camp.
There was be hiking, campfires, wild swimming, dog walking, stargazing, laughter, friendship and endless fresh air.
Our guests learnt in the company of true experts.
Pippa is known by most as her Instagram handle – Pippy Eats – where she showcases her favourite recipes, most of which contain noodles.
Pippa’s interest in Chinese cookery began when she was a young child and her grandfather would take her for dim sum. Over the years, it blossomed into a passion. She has been learning about East and South-East Asian cookery for over 15 years. She attended Lanzhou Noodle School in 2019 whilst travelling in China.
Pippa graduated with a degree in Microbiology and molecular biology before starting her career as a cancer research scientist with Cancer Research UK in Manchester. She has now combined her love for science with her passion for cookery and hosts supper clubs and cookery workshops, with a focus on noodles and broths, paying particular attention to the molecular biology at play in our cooking.
In 2018, Pippa won Britains Best Home Cook, hosted by Mary Berry and Claudia Winkleman.
Her new multifunctional event space, Noodlehaus, will open Autumn 2020 and will be a creative hub for workshops, supper clubs and events.
During the Coronavirus lockdown in 2020 Pippa began jarring her homemade chilli oils for friends and family. Demand quickly grew and they now sell out in under 2 minutes.
Pippa’s first cookbook Dumplings & Noodles was published August 2020 by Quadrille.

We have a handful of perfect holiday cottages and a contemporary, upmarket B&B called The Coach House.
Glen Dye is a private estate of around 15,000 acres and our cabins and cottages sit slap bang at its centre, surrounded by wilderness forest and moorland on the banks of the River Dye. The location is fabled; watched over by the massive granite tor of Clachnaben and at the northern end of the Cairn O’ Mount mountain pass. This is where the Howe of the Mearns finally gives in to the Highland boundary fault; Wild, beautiful and very, very quiet.
