Explore the flavors of the United Kingdom as the British Embassy 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.
The Pig & Palm is the first restaurant in the Philippines of Michelin-starred, British Chef Jason Atherton who has 17 renowned restaurants worldwide. For the week-long promotion of the festival’s Cebu leg from March 10-18, 2018, they 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. All steaks will be served with triple cooked chips, salad, peppercorn, and béarnaise sauce. A special Johnnie Walker-based cocktail will also be available for the period.
“All featured dishes will be using beef that is dry-aged for 35 days to bring out the beef’s full flavour potential,” shares 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 their meat an incredible flavour and texture fit for the most discerning palates around the world. They were also honored to showcase their offerings at the British Embassy in Athens’ 90th birthday celebration for HM Queen Elizabeth. Both The Pig & Palm and C&K Meats share a passion for superior quality and taste without compromising on environmental sustainability.
The #GreatBritishFestival celebrates British fashion, music, design, education and food. It kicked off last February 23, 2018 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 11:00 a.m. onwards, and is located at the MSY Tower, Pescadores Road, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City.
