Beautiful photographs and inspired recipes vie for readers' attention in this very layered book. The recipes are organized classically by category. Essays on different locations are interspersed between chapters; each essay includes a paradigmatic recipe germane to that location. There are 100 recipes in all, among them Shaved Artichokes a la Plancha with Aged Comte Cheese; Grilled Short Ribs with Vinegar-Glazed Charred Endive; a Tortilla of Cast-Iron Fried Potatoes, Spinach, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes; Cowboy Ribeye with Crispy Brioche Salad and Grilled Dates; Smashed Chicken Breast in a Potato Crust; and Coal-Roasted Zucchini and Swiss Chard. And just like Seven Fires, Mallmann on Fire is peppered with the unexpected and outsized, from roasting grapes on the vine to cooking legs of lamb hung from string to hosting a pork parrillada for forty. Beautifully written personal pieces speak to Francis's love of the simple life and the pleasures of spending as much of it as you can outdoors.
Francis Mallmann is the reigning star of food television in the Spanish-speaking world, and the most famous and popular chef in South America. He has three restaurants: one in Mendoza, Argentina's wine country; another in the La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires; and the third in the picturesque village of Garzon, Uruguay. USA Today and The Times (U.K.) have named his restaurants among the top ten places to eat in the world.
