During their hunt for the best meat they met with chefs, butchers, farmers, steakhouse owners, food journalists and meat experts about all the variables that has an affect on the quality on the meat once it’s time to put on the plate and eat it.

But what are the criterias for the world’s best steak? Well, taste is subjective so Franck had to use his own taste to decide. So he judged the meat by his own pleasure when eating it, meaning the texture, taste and aroma of the meat. There are of course many different styles of meats depending on cuts, animals, feed and so on but what Franck realized is that his own taste is very close to what most people seem to appreciate.
