Home Leeds

Home is the newish restaurant created by Liz Cottam – ex Masterchef finalist and Mark Owens – ex Box Tree. They offer a monthly changing ten course menu (for £70 plus a £45 wine flight, plus Sunday lunch (£50).

We bang on endlessly about Tasting Menus, too many small plates of multi-course meals taking hours out of our lives, but chefs seem to love them and, I have to acknowledge, so must a fair number of customers. And if they get the Michelin star they’re obviously gunning for then they’ll be quid’s in.

We opt for the more manageable five course Sunday lunch, served in what is now an elegant and spacious dining room after a total refurb of the restaurant we remember as the Indian Darbar.

Lunch is an excellent updating of the usual roast and two veg. Most memorable is a little rabbit suet pudding with cabbage and gravy, deliciously comforting. More please.

There follows artichoke cream and roasted scallop, next their take on cauliflower cheese – pickled and roast cauliflower and a cheese filled mini pancake with truffle - then roast pork, apple sauce and Yorkshire pudding and a new look at lemon meringue to finish. It’s all highly accomplished.

I didn’t care for some of the guff round the edges and it’s interesting how it’s divided the critics. The Sunday Times loved it, The Guardian didn’t. For my full Yorkshire Post review click here
