Japanese Wagyu Named ‘World’s Best Steak’

The 2022 World Steak Challenge — which is organized by William Reed, the same publisher behind the coveted World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, and hosted by the Irish state-run food board Bord Bia — handed out three tiers of medals (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) across three categories (Fillet, Ribeye, and Sirloin).

A Japanese Wagyu was crowned the overall winner of World’s Best Steak and also achieved the World’s Best Sirloin and World’s Best Grain-Fed steak. The World’s Best Rib-Eye went to Australia’s Jack’s Creek, which previously took the 2021 titles of Best Fillet, Best Rib-Eye and Grain-Fed winners. The winning fillet steak was won by MFC Carni from Poland.

This Pumpkin Spice Latte Engagement Ring Can Be Yours for Only $10K

Angelic Diamonds — a self-described “customer-focused jewelry company specializing in the design and manufacture of fine diamond jewelry” based in northern England — whipped up the £10,000 ring (a mere $10,800 at the current historically-favorable exchange rate) to “add a little spice to proposals” this fall.

The brand says that “every detail is inspired by pumpkin spice lattes” starting with a rose gold band “designed to replicate the rib shape of a pumpkin” with white diamonds, orange sapphires, and emerald shoulder stones down either side. From there, the ring features a single “whipped cream shaped” center diamond surrounded by a cluster of white diamonds and orange sapphires “set in a cup-shaped claw, reminiscent of a warm cup of pumpkin spice-goodness.”
