The Swine That Dines
Adventurous cooking at one of Leeds’ most respected restaurants. The Swine That Dines is driven by a passion for extremely high welfare meat – and eating all of the animal. Expect their regularly changing menus of small plates to feature dishes such as hogget with offal ragu, pumpkin and cannellini, and ox tongue with pickled mushrooms and mustard, alongside equally inventive vegetarian options.
Head Chef is Stuart Myers, a man without borders who combines a background in brasserie cooking with inspiration from kitchens and bookshelves around the world.
Ingredients are listed on the menu as collections of ingredients (a la Rogan…. or any restaurant with Michelin aspirations) and arrive as cohesive combinations, a showreel, if you will, of processes and techniques boasting the chef’s versatility. Think cold and warm salads; classic French boudin and gratin; pates and rillettes and croquettes and falafels; pan-fried heart and liver and unpopular fish.
It’s not licensed but you’re welcome to BYO. Choose a wine with a pedigree as solid as The Swine That Dines – and you could be in for the night of your life.
