CANADIAN BEEF has been a staple in restaurants here in the metro. If you're not familiar, Canadian Beef is a flexible and great source of flavors. Recently, Makati Shangri-la and the CANADIAN BEEF partnered together to create and serve delicious dishes at SAGE in Makati.
A small gathering of sorts was held in Sage Bespoke Grill in Makati Shangri-la a few days ago. Guests were treated to a multi-course selection of fine dishes made with Canadian Beef. The meal was themed after the different seasons in Canada. First stop was SPRING. Here, Le Bouilli de Grand Maman was served. This is Canadian Beef Consomme. There was subtle truffle flavor mixed with the consomme. It was light and perfect to start the dinner. Wine pairing was even done to elevate the flavors. Not a surprise, Canadian wines were used.
For Summer, Reef and Range on Three Summer Sisters was the name of the dish. It composed of a cofit of Canadian Spot Prawn and Beef Cheeks Tortellini. The prawns were sweet and magnificent. The tortellini brought out the beef flavor in a different way. It actually worked with the squash, cheese, and corn that came with it.
The next dish was for FALL. BEEF CHUCKS 2 WAYS. A very simple and straight forward approach to trying out what CANADIAN BEEF HAS TO OFFER.
To further showcase the qualities of CANADIAN BEEF, they served WOOD GRILLED PRIME RIBEYE. Partnered with charred cabbage, honey glazed turnips and mustard jus, this piece of meat was simple and direct.
Winter was their dessert. This is their pumpkin spice with sticky toffee pudding. On the side, there was dark beer sorbet with dried fruits and nuts. Once they presented this to the table, you could smell how freshly baked it was. It reminds you of pine trees and the holiday season.
