Cows in Argentina walk around fields eating wheat and alfalfa, and they are never in a barn. “They have a fantastic life, so it’s the best meat one can have,” says legendary Argentinian chef Francis Mallmann in a video on the art of steak from Nowness. (In contrast, the typical cow in America is stuffed with GM corn-based feed and antibiotics.)

The chef says most think steak cooking is a masculine endeavor, but that’s a misconception. “I believe that the art of fire and cooking meat is very fragile, tender, and feminine. And it has nothing to do with the indelicate idea that it surrounds. To cook a great barbecue one must have a very strong feminine intuition.”
