Irish Cancer Society Charity Evening in Beeftro
Last Thursday saw a fun initiative in Beeftro Steakhouse on Balfe Street to raise some all important funds for the Irish Cancer Society. The packed event was hosted by the charismatic John Collins, owner of Beeftro and Tv3’s “The Restaurant” John Healy who kept the laughs coming all night. The team had created an evening designed to test everyone’s beef knowledge.
“What’s your beef” saw four delicious cuts of prime beef being shared amongst each table and voted in order of taste as a blind tasting. It was clear opinion was divided on many tables and having shared a table with two charming lads with a strong beef knowledge and a background in farming this was not as easy as it looked. The quality of the beef, all from Glen South Farm a world leader in farming innovation and also the well being of their cattle was outstanding and the chef’s at Beeftro clearly know how to bring the best out of every succulent piece.
As you can see from the photo above, each plate was marked with a letter (A to D), diners were unaware of which cut of beef they where tasting, each cut is listed below:
Plate A – Fresian
Plate B – Angus
Plate C – Hereford
Plate D – French Blonde
Frank Murphy, owner of Glen South Farm, who supplied all the beef spoke very eloquently of his support and involvement in the Irish Cancer Society following his wife Teresa’s battle with the disease, who has thankfully come out the other side.
As this is a charity wholly funded by private donations these type of events are crucial to highlighting the amazing work this charity does to make a very difficult journey somewhat easier. From night nurses, transport to appointments to all important cancer research every donations can help make a difference to someones life.
The surprise of the evening for many of the diner’s, some of whom were from the Irish Farmers Association was that the French Blonde was the overall winner on the night, just pipping the Hereford cut to the post.
This was a great beef experience, for a very worthy charity, in a restaurant we would highly recommend.
