ABOUT OUR PRODUCER: SNAKE RIVER FARMS

Here at Eataly, we source our Wagyu from Snake River Farms. A prized cross between the famed Japanese Wagyu and American Angus, Snake River Farms American Wagyu is raised along the high plain of the Snake River in Eastern Idaho, a herd that’s one of the most highly regarded groups of American Wagyu cattle in the world. Snake River Farms has adopted many aspects of the heritage-steeped Japanese feeding method, which takes up to four times longer than traditional U.S. cattle production methods. The result is stunningly-beautiful breed that is extremely tender, intensely flavourful and makes for a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

What does Wagyu beef taste like?

You’ll find that it has a buttery, yet firm texture and lustrous, red colour It’s a very juicy style of beef with some serious umami flavour. Although it has a strong beefy taste, it’s more “sweet” than “greasy.”

Why is Wagyu beef so popular?

In short: flavour. Thanks to the organogenetic traits of Japanese cattle, Wagyu beef boasts intense marbling – thin streaks of fat dispersed evenly throughout the meat. This translates to a more tender, flavourful cut of meat that can actually be cooked longer without getting too tough or dried out. Additionally, the fat found in Wagyu beef is healthier and of higher quality than other cuts of meat. It melts at a lower temperature, meaning that when you eat this type of beef, you’ll taste the fat much sooner.

Mark your calendars for our Wagyu Weekend from May 16 to May 19!
