The night started with a greeting from Miss Maple, a lovely cow mascot armed withÂ a red apron and a cheery smile. And while sheâ€™s probably the cutest Canada has to offer (when it comes to cattle), there was a bigger star in the room.
â€œWe put the best of Canada into our beef,â€ said Daisuke Shimojima, Asia executive director for business development of the Canada Beef International Institute, as he elaborated on the great ranch stories of Canada: its open fields, and of course, the 12 million heads of cattle that graze there.Â True enough, his statements were brought to life when the New World Makati Hotel launched the Canadian Beef Advantage at its elegant Glass Room. From Canadian beef burger patties made into colorful sliders, to Chinese delicacies made of Canadian beef, all the way up to classic, smoky, tender slabs of beef that almost melt off the bone â€“ the hotel definitely pulled all the stops as they launched this yearâ€™s Canadian Beef Advantage.
