Belfast restaurant serves up perfect recipe in support of Children’s Charity

23rd March 2012

Belfast city-centre restaurant Coco is raising the steaks in support of the Northern Ireland Children’s Cancer Unit Fund (NICCUF) by cooking up a treat for whoever pays the highest price at a Charity auction for the winning steaks in the annual European Angus Steak Tasting Competition. 

On offer to the highest bidder is a table for four at Coco, the winning steaks served up with all the trimmings and an all-round fantastic dining experience.
All entrants in this year’s competition have agreed to donate their steaks for the Children’s Charity, if selected, and now it’s a case of waiting for the results, which will be announced at a special Charity Awards night being held at Tandragee Golf Club on Friday, 30th March. The winning steaks will then be auctioned off on the night.

Staged at CAFRE, Loughry Campus in Cookstown this was the second year of the event which aims to find the best Fillet steak, Sirloin steak and Rib-eye steak in Northern Ireland. The annual competition is fast becoming recognised as one of the most prestigious events in the beef sector calendar.

As well as announcing the winners at the Awards Night and Dinner a special auction and raffle will also be held in aid of the European Angus Cattle Society’s chosen charity, the Northern Ireland Children’s Cancer Unit Fund (NICCUF).

“We are delighted that leading Belfast restaurant, Coco, are supporting our Charity appeal and with the combination of their cooking expertise and wonderful surroundings, and of course the best steaks in Northern Ireland, we have no doubt this will be the dining experience of the year,” said European Angus Cattle Society secretary, Harry McGaffin.

“We managed to raise a total of £1,205 for NICCUF last year and we are hopeful that figure can be surpassed at this year’s Charity Gala event,” explained Society Secretary, Harry McGaffin.
