Description

"Elemental, fundamental, and delicious" is how Anthony Bourdain describes the trailblazing live-fire cooking of Francis Mallmann. The New York Times called Mallmann's first book, Seven Fires, "captivating" and "inspiring." And now, in Mallmann on Fire, the passionate master of the Argentine grill takes us grilling in magical places - in winter's snow, on mountaintops, on the beach, on the crowded streets of Manhattan, on a deserted island in Patagonia, in Paris, Brooklyn, Bolinas, Brazil - each locale inspiring new discoveries as revealed in 100 recipes for meals both intimate and outsized. We encounter legs of lamb and chicken hung from strings, coal-roasted delicata squash, roasted herbs, a parrillada of many fish, and all sorts of griddled and charred meats, vegetables, and fruits, plus rustic desserts cooked on the chapa and baked in wood-fired ovens. At every stop along the way there is something delicious to eat and a lesson to be learned about slowing down and enjoying the process, not just the result.show more

Review quote

"Argentinean chef Francis Mallmann is back with the sequel to his fantastic 2009 cookbook, "Seven Fires." This time, he explores the world of open fire cooking in Argentina and beyond. . . . This one could be one of the best books out this year." --"Eater" "Culinary genius. . . . The 100 recipes are, by and large, flavor bombs that are relatively easy to put together . . . producing delicious, beautiful dishes." --"Wall Street Journal" "Simple-yet-ingenious takes on vegetables." --"Fine Cooking" "Primal, fascinating and terribly elegant stuff." --"Houston Chronicle" "The story delivers the very heart of Mallmann's message--use a few fresh ingredients and the proper application of fire to create a deeply satisfying meal." --"Austin Chronicle" "He's the master of smoke and char." --Dan Barber "No one grills better! Francis is a purist and an inspiration." --Alice Waters "I would travel a thousand miles just hoping for a taste." --Mario Batali "Culinary genius. . . . The 100 recipes are, by and large, flavor bombs that are relatively easy to put together . . . producing delicious, beautiful dishes." --Wall Street Journal "Simple-yet-ingenious takes on vegetables." --Fine Cooking "Primal, fascinating and terribly elegant stuff." --Houston Chronicle "The story delivers the very heart of Mallmann's message--use a few fresh ingredients and the proper application of fire to create a deeply satisfying meal." --Austin Chronicle "Make[s] Mallmann's larger-than-life approach to outdoor cooking accessible on a household scale. . . . This beautiful book is both travelogue and outdoor cooking handbook. If you find yourself tamping down feelings of envy about Mallmann's footloose, relaxed yet exciting lifestyle, you won't be alone. Just face it. We can't all grill fish on a remote beach in Patagonia. But we can let Mallmann help us do it in our own back yards." --Miami Herald "He's the master of smoke and char." --Dan Barber "No one grills better!
