Cooking Demo #2: "Eat Well with grass-fed beef"-Jammy Buggar's executive chef Robert Geul
Jammy Buggar's head chef talks about cooking beef. One of the great features of Jammy Buggar's has always been locally raised gras fed beef. The owner Jim has always said he can tell me the name of the cow the burger came from. Well here is the proof. That is the farmer that raises their beef to the right.
