National Wagyu Day prepared wagyu beef ready to be served

National Wagyu Day

The spirit of National Wagyu Day is to celebrate the delicacy of Wagyu beef on Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year.

The celebration is for both those trying the delicious beef for the first time, as well as seasoned Wagyu connoisseurs. The other important purpose of the day is to spread awareness of the rigorous authentication process of Wagyu beef. In fact, it is a process of which many highly-trained chefs, servers, and butchers are not fully aware.

What is Wagyu Beef?

The Japanese word wagyu literally means Japanese cow. Derived from Japanese cattle, Wagyu beef is revered for its uniquely uniformed marbling that forms a delectable melt-in-your-mouth flavor. This superior characteristic makes it among the most sought-after delicacies throughout the world. Wagyu is also widely referred to as the King of Beef.

About the Founder of National Wagyu Day

As a steak connoisseur, Steve Haddadin had his first experience with a Wagyu Authentication Certificate in Columbus, Ohio at Hyde Park Steakhouse. The restaurant grants a certificate to each and every customer who orders Wagyu. Reviewing the certificate peaked Steve’s curiosity, which led him to the Japanese Carcass Verification Bureau website, and eventually, to his founding of National Wagyu Day. Thanks to Steve’s passion and the help of many restaurants, butchers, bloggers, and members of the media, National Wagyu Day has become a widely recognized observance day.
