Chef, Tommy Banks’s talent is in itself truly remarkable. He began cooking at the family’s first restaurant, the Michelin-starred Black Swan Oldstead straight out of school and with no formal training. He was Britain’s youngest Michelin-starred chef in 2013 aged 24, and a winner of BBC Two’s Great British Menu in both 2016 and 2017. He also regularly appears on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen and MasterChef. He has now grown from his roots in Oldstead to bring his ethos and produce into the city of York.
As well as our 20-acre farm, in 2013 we also developed a three-acre kitchen garden in the field next to The Black Swan. Having the garden allows us to grow food that is unique to us and allows us to be able to serve ingredients that can not be procured elsewhere; examples being Crapaudine beetroot, Black Truffe potatoes and Wineberries.
Our food travels fresh from our farm in Oldstead to the restaurant daily, and our menus are a true reflection on the changing seasons and the food we’re growing.
Our brand-new tasting menu adopts a different style to reflect each of the growing groups as defined in Tommy’s cookbook, Roots. Tommy and his team work around these three groups; The Preservation Season, The Hunger Gap and The Time of Abundance. With these, the dishes change as the availability of ingredients come and go.
