Francis Mallmann: Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the work of his father took him to live in Patagonia, where he fell in love with the kitchen. He began his culinary training in France with the nouvelle cuisine. Years later he returned to Argentina, and for several years devoted himself to different projects between Europe and Buenos Aires.

 

Finally, in 1983 he opened his first venture: a restaurant at night and cooking school day. Gradually, he abandoned the foundations of nouvelle cuisine to devote to the rustic kitchen, which is the return to basic, everyday ingredients, simple utensils and classic preparations, combined with the passion for the combination of flavors and a gourmet twist.

 

He is also the creator of “Siete fuegos”: This proposal is for lunches or meals outdoors with a tour through seven fires cooking techniques. The same can be done in the pampa fields, desert, snow or at the beach. For them it requires adequate space where they can ignite fires using firewood and charcoal. These techniques were inherited from some ancestors of the native peoples of South America and other ones in the life of the gaucho and the European migrations in Argentina.
