Directed by Frank Ribière, this mouth-watering documentary registers Mr. Ribière's worldwide chase, together with butcher Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec, for the world's best steak. As they travel around the world in search of passionate cattle breeders, professional butchers, chefs, meat experts and the best steak houses, the duo explores how good and healthy red meat can be achieved – and is becoming a luxury product.
The move toward smaller-scale operation is impacting the beef industry and many see this as a positive change. Far from the cattle farms with their industrial output, Frank Ribière and Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec delve deep into the topic in order to understand what makes good meat – and a great steak. In the process, their fascinating discoveries end up challenge some of the previously established assumptions about how (and where) to get the healthiest and most delicious steak. Complete with tantalizing food imagery to excite the senses, this is a must see for any steak enthusiasts.
