Not fish…it’s Japanese wagyu beef!
Fatty, tender, and umami-rich…Japanese wagyu beef is one of the world’s most luxurious foods, ranked high among ingredients like black truffles and caviar. But what makes wagyu so special? The secret lies in nutrient-rich fodder, gender, lifespan and…classical music!?
