Contemporary Yorkshire cooking next to the Minster

Sitting on the corner of Petergate, Dean Court is an amalgam of Victorian buildings originally put up to house clergy at the Minster. Today the DCH dining room is a clean-lined, light-coloured contemporary space. The modern styling gives a clue to the orientation of the cooking, where Yorkshire produce is put to effective use in offerings such as nettle risotto with goats' cheese bonbon, followed by venison loin with potato fondant, wild mushrooms, Chantenay carrots, parsnip crisps and game jus. The show might close with a pairing of chocolate fondant and mint clotted cream ice cream.
