Pippa Middlehurst

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.

Her recipes have been featured in Olive magazine, BBC Good Food, Nigella Lawsons Cookbook Corner, Metro, Sheer Luxe and more.
