The United Kingdom is famous the world over for its rich culture and heritage. However, the diversity and excellence of modern British cuisine remains undiscovered in the Philippines.
To allow Filipinos the chance to experience the different aspects and wide variety of British cuisine without having to go abroad, the British Embassy and its partners welcome the New Year with British Food Month, which is ongoing until February 9.
Exciting food offerings by premier hotels in Metro Manila will be available throughout the month, beginning with Dusit Thani, which will be holding a Great British Carvery Brunch all Sundays of January. The hotel will be hosting visiting British chef, Derek Quelch who will also be preparing special menus.
Edsa Shangri-la will host High Tea during The Great British Afternoon Affair at their new Lobby Lounge, as well as The Great British Feast by British executive chef Warren Brown at Heat.
Meanwhile, UK-based hotel chain Intercontinental Manila will feature British Pub Grub at Gambrinus Bar and Sol Y Sombra, while British-owned Mandarin Oriental will offer a British-themed Business Lunch at Tosca and a unique Anglo-Indian buffet at Paseo Uno to cap the promotion from February 3 to 9.
Iconic UK brands are also participating in British Food Month, including Marks & Spencer, with discounted items week per week.
British Food Month is part of This is GREAT Britain campaign, a five month celebration of the best of British business and culture, which will culminate in March 2014 with the Great British Festival weekend at Bonifacio High Street.
