What’s all the fuss about Wagyu beef?


What’s all the fuss about Wagyu beef?

Wagyu (meaning “Japanese cow”) beef is revered around the world for its dense fat marbling, flavour and tenderness. Wagyu were and are raised with one goal in mind: supreme flavor. They are the King of cattle, are super-beef, the champagne, the caviar, the Château Petrus of meat. Wagyu is so tender it dissolves in the mouth ‘like lightly cooked fish’.

Its most striking characteristic is pervasive marbling. Achieving evenly distributed fat is a slow process. Wagyu cows are typically bred for upward of 30 months.

Chefs Around the globe are falling over themselves to put it on the menu. Posh butchers are building altar-like displays. In 2016 a Wagyu sirloin from Australia has been judged the best steak in the world.

But, be your own judge and enjoy the Carpaccio appetizer made of Australian Wagyu sirloin!
