Mark Schatzker is a freelance magazine writer and frequent contributor to Conde Nast Traveler and a humor columnist for the Globe and Mail newspaper. He has been nominated for a James Beard journalism award and has received numerous magazine awards. He is best known for his Conde Nast Traveler story and wildly popular blog that took him around the world in 80 days without ever taking a plane. (Not as easy as you'd think.) Steak has been a longtime obsession in Schatzker's writing and a couple of years ago, after suffering one too many bland and overpriced strip loins, he decided that he'd finally had enough. Where, he wondered, can a person find a decent steak? Thus began another world odyssey, the culmination of which is Steak: One Man's Search for the World's Tastiest Piece of Beef.
