Francis Mallmann:

“After three or four years working in France with some of the best chefs, I went back to Argentina. I started a very nice career, became quite successful... But I realized that I hadn’t yet found my own language of cooking. So I got on my knees and gathered all the tools from my childhood – the fires, and the voices of the natives of South America, the voices of all the Gaucho cooking – and started working very hard on that. And that’s how it all started.”
