Francis Mallmann reinvents the art of cooking over fire in his book "Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way."
Gloriously inspired recipes push the boundaries of live-fired cuisine in this primal yet sophisticated cookbook introducing the incendiary dishes of South America's biggest culinary star. Chef Francis Mallmann—born in Patagonia and trained in France's top restaurants—abandoned the fussy fine dining scene for the more elemental experience of cooking with fire. But his fans followed, including the world's top food journalists and celebrities, such as Francis Ford Coppola, Madonna, and Ralph Lauren, traveling to Argentina and Uruguay to experience the dashing chef's astonishing—and delicious—wood-fired feats.
The seven fires of the title refer to a series of grilling techniques that have been singularly adapted for the home cook. So you can cook Signature Mallmann dishes—like Whole Boneless Ribeye with Chimichuri; Salt-Crusted Striped Bass; Whole Roasted Andean Pumpkin with Mint and Goat Cheese Salad; and desserts such as Dulce de Leche Pancakes—indoors or out in any season. Evocative photographs showcase both the recipes and the exquisite beauty of Mallmann's home turf in Patagonia, Buenos Aires, and rural Uruguay. Seven Fires is a must for any griller ready to explore food's next frontier.
The South American Table is the first comprehensive survey of South America's richly varied cuisine. It contains 450 authentic recipes from 10 countries including Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia with recipes ranging from tamales to Latin barbecue. It also has thorough chapters on basic preparations and techniques, a glossary, a dictionary of ingredients, and a resource guide.
Patagonia, on the southern tip of South America, is one of the world's greatest wildlife habitats and this book illustrates just that. It's a window on the life-and-death struggles of the wild animals that live there, including photographs of killer whales, elephant seals, penguins and albatrosses. By Jasmine Rossi printed in Italy.
