Raw & Wild is authentic “Food Tourism.” Building on the movement for food tourism and for organic eating, we are adventuring across New Mexico and the Southwest discovering breathtaking locations while rediscovering indigenous foods which naturally grow on the land. Unlike other food tourism shows, this isn't about visiting restaurants but rather ancient places and individuals who know ancient techniques that can be reapplied in the modern world. Before food was modernized, mechanized, and genetically engineered, it came from an authentic place. We are going back to the origin of food, when food was sacred.

Raw & Wild transports you to a glory age where food was clean, found off the land, and it naturally nourished your body. Prepare to adventure across the beautiful landscape of New Mexico while rediscovering indigenous food and be inspired by ancient recipes that stretch 500-years into the past.

Dry Aging Process Tomahawk Ribeye

Dry Aging is rarely performed anymore but is the best way to naturally tenderize beef as well as concentrate the natural flavor. It is completely different process and much expensive than common wet aging. At El Pinto Restaurant we dry age all of our Tomahawk Ribeye Steaks for over 30 days. In this video owner, John Thomas, takes you behind the scene to see where we dry age our beef before we hand trim them into Tomahawk Ribeye Steaks.
