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.

What would you call a restaurant where steaks are aged five to eight weeks in special aging room, where a wine cellar is, perhaps, the largest in the world, where vegetables served are organic and cooked to order, where only freshly squeezed juices and superb quality liquors are used to prepare your cocktail, where customers enjoy out-of-water seafood, where the finest kona coffee beans in the world are hand - sorted to eliminate every single defect? There is only one word for such a place: Remarkable. That was the word the highly regarded Esquire columnist John Mariani chose after his first visit to this legendary restaurant located in Tampa, Florida. Visitors flock to Bern's from the far corners of the globe to experience their exquisite prime beef and glorious vintage wines. Why? What makes this steak house so remarkable? Author Joyce LaFray, food and travel journalist, and close friend of founder Bern Laxer for over 25 years, answers those questions and more, in this compelling story of the wunderkind restaurant. Just recently, after a long illness, founder Bern Laxer passed away. Today, the restaurant shines under the brilliant direction of Bern's son, David Laxer. His aspirations, like his father, know few boundaries. Behind every success, there is a successful team and this handsome hardcover book is about that team Bern and Gert, family and loyal staff. LaFray narrates the story of how Bern's gained its excellent reputation not only by preparing exquisite aged prime steaks and collecting world-class wines but by garnering kudos in all aspects of restaurant management.The story is simple, yet complex. It is a story about Bern Laxer's near obsession with attention to detail and how that striving for perfection created one of the most famous steak houses in the world. Bern Laxer believed that whatever is done in any field should be done totally, wholeheartedly and completely.
