Steak (R)évolution

Far from intensive farming and industrial output, a revolution is already under way; good red meat has become a rare, indeed, luxury product. But where is the world's best steak found? Franck Ribière and his favorite butcher, Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec, generous, charming, and ecological, set out to meet the new players in the field to try to understand what makes a cut of meat good.

    Udderly fascinating.

    Perhaps the most fascinating part is that the best steak in Japan comes from virgin female cows that are massaged in beer.

    You read that right.

    The French are rearing their cows all wrong and it's making their steaks inferior so Franck travels the world to see how other countries are getting it right. As much a travelog as anything, this touches on some serious stuff like agricultural politics, farmyard feminism and sperm stealing. Get ready for over use of the word 'marbling', the prettiest French cow herder you'll ever see and to be made very hungry.
