THE QUEEN OF DIGNITY
Matsusaka Wagyu beef 松阪牛, is known as "The Queen of Dignity", and is recognised as one of the top three types of beef in Japan together with Kobe & Omi. For years, it has remained one of Japan's best-kept secrets and an exquisite Japanese delicacy due to the limited supply and high domestic demand.
Matsusaka Wagyu hails from Ito-san's farm which is located in the rich serene pastures within the Mie Prefecture. The cattle are typically fed tofu and ground wheat, receive massages, listen to Mozart's symphonies, and an occasional pint of beer for relaxation - these cows have better lives than many of us.
It's believed that these relaxing methods help produce a finer quality of beef as a happy cow gives good meat.
