Cooking with fire is the hallmark of Francis Mallmann’s style. He hails from deep in Patagonia, Chile, but his bold rustic cooking and way of life are world renowned and could just as easily be from the rustic, outdoor minded Inland NW.
Mallmann owns nine restaurants located all around the world, but chooses to make his home on an island in Argentina with no phone service. His departure from the hustle and bustle of being a globally renowned chef and his bold and eccentric attitudes towards life and art have added to his mystique.
He is a rock star among celebrity chefs, but one that does not seek the spotlight. His magic is that he draws you to him, uncompromising of the things that make him unique. He is beyond a doubt the highest example of a “fiercely free” chef.
