‘Great British Festival’ in Cebu at The Pig & Palm

EXPLORE the flavors of the United Kingdom as the British Embassy Manila presents the Great British Festival. Now on its fifth year, it brings the celebration of culture and innovation to Cebu for the very first time, exclusively at The Pig & Palm.

For the week-long promotion of the festival’s Cebu leg from March 10 to 18, it will be offering a selection of beef dishes. Indulge in a traditional Beef Wellington with truffle mashed potatoes and honey glazed carrots, Beef Tartare with truffle goat’s curd and pickled onions, and 300 grams Fillet or Ribeye Steak. A special Johnnie Walker-based cocktail will also be available for the period.

“We are importing British beef especially for this occasion. All featured dishes will be using 35 day dry-aged beef to bring out the beef’s full flavor potential,” said head chef Karl Emsen.

True to its vision of providing a Michelin-level dining experience, The Pig & Palm will be sourcing the beef for its dish from East Anglia through C&K Meats, whose history in the industry stretches back over 200 years. C&K Meats handpicks the best breeds that graze on a rich diversity of grasses in river valleys, salt marshes, and meadows, giving its meat an incredible flavor and texture fit for the most discerning palates around the world.

The #GreatBritishFestival celebrates British fashion, music, design, education and food. It kicked off last Feb. 23 at the Glorietta Mall and will extend across the Philippines to Cebu, Iloilo, Dumaguete and Baguio.

The Pig & Palm is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 11 a.m. onward and is located at the MSY Tower, Pescadores Road, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City. (PR)
