Traces the author's whimsical pursuit of an ideal beef-consuming experience in numerous countries, where he sampled top varieties before fattening his own heifer and experiencing mixed feelings about having her butchered.

So Schatzker set off on a quest to find the very best piece of beef in the world — a quest that took him from feedlots in Texas, to French cave paintings of prehistoric cattle, to the Argentine pampas.
