Definitely one for the city's foodies, the Heavensteak team is returning to Palate in Manchester this August to showcase the finest meats and steaks in their arsenal. The highlight of the event will be the three different steaks that everyone will be served; one rump, one water buffalo and one kangaroo. Better still, each will come with a particular sauce that complements and highlights the natural taste of each meat.
