Ostrich Meat

Ostrich meat is known as the most healthy red meat. Its distinct subtle taste and versatility has made ostrich meat a most sought after menu item by hoteliers, restaurateurs, home cooks and caterers throughout the world. It is high in protein, cholesterol free and low in kilojoules & fat.

Imagine a red meat as tasty as Brazilian picanha and as healthy as fish. It is ostrich, also called the "fillet of the future". With a soft texture and a light flavour, it has 1/3 of the calories of beef.

With Lisbon in the middle of 'sardine season' and June promising a scorching summer, this week the Terraço restaurant at Hotel Tivoli Lisbon decided to suggest something different: "Ostrich à la carte & à la mode", a food show starring ostrich meat raised in South Africa and exported all over the world with exclusive recipes presented by chef Peter Goffe-Wood, also known as a "food alchemist". This constitutes a challenge for someone who hasn't eaten red meat for six years and has already forgotten the taste of a juicy underdone steak. However, with the city and the Tagus river in the background and the panoramic view of the restaurant delighting our eyes and our souls, the challenge was accepted.
