Each episode takes our hungry host to the farthest reaches of the globe, and some not so far, in search of the perfect piece of flesh. he starts with succulent slabs of meat on his plate, and traces it back to its origin. From his table to the kitchen to the butcher to the ranch. All along the way, eh tries to figure out what was done to it to make it so damn tasty.
Mark takes us beyond just the cooking process and presentation, behind the scenes for an inside look at what the farmer, fisherman or hunter has to do to get the meat from the land or sea to our plate. Mark is the meat world's Anthony Bourdain.
