Read full description of the books:



The definitive book on steak has never been written-until now

"Of all the meats, only one merits its own structure. There is no such place as a lamb house or a pork house, but even a small town can have a steak house." So begins Mark Schatzker's ultimate carnivorous quest. Fed up with one too many mediocre steaks, the intrepid journalist set out to track down, define, and eat the perfect specimen. His journey takes him to all the legendary sites of steak excellence-Texas, France, Scotland, Italy, Japan, Argentina, and Idaho's Pahsimeroi Valley-where he discovers the lunatic lengths steak lovers will go to consume the perfect cut. After contemplating the merits of Black Angus, Kobe, Chianina, and the prehistoric aurochs-a breed revived by the Nazis after four hundred years of extinction-Schatzker adopts his own heifer, fattens her on fruit, acorns, and Persian walnuts, and then grapples with ambivalence when this near-pet appears on his plate.

Reminiscent of both Bill Bryson's and Bill Buford's writing, Steak is a warm, humorous, and wide-ranging read that introduces a wonderful new travel and food writer to the common table.

Read information about the author

Ebook Steak: One Man's Search for the World's Tastiest Piece of Beef read Online! In my new book, THE DORITO EFFECT, I examine the food crisis -- obesity, metabolic disease, etc., through the lens of flavor. For 50 years, we've been arguing over fat, carbs and sugar. Does the way food taste have something to do with how much people eat? I think the answer will surprise, frighten, and thrill you. My first book, which came out in 2010, was STEAK, in which I traveled the world searching for the single greatest piece of meat.
