"Most of what's in this captivating book about cooking over wood is as straightforward as it is appealing."
-The New York Times
"Glorious...You could amuse yourself all summer long exploring Mallmann's methods. His cooking is utterly unpretentious."
"[Mallmann] cooks with the elegant purity achieved only after attaining a mastery of complicated food."
"Mallmann cooks with the elegant purity achieved only after attaining a mastery of complicated food. I craved Mallmann’s burnt flavors, from caramelized oranges with rosemary to flattened sweet potatoes charred in butter. Bobby Flay, be very afraid." —Christine Muhlke
"[Mallmann] reconnects us to the primal simplicity and visceral pleasure of cooking over a fire."
"Argentinean chef Francis Mallmann presents a gorgeous volume detailing seven approaches to grilling. What will keep cooks coming back, however, are rustic dishes like burnt tomatoes with fennel and mustard vinaigrette; pork chops with honey gremolata; and boneless ribeye with chimichurri. Augmented with plenty of smoky photos, the only thing readers will lack is the smell of charcoal." *STARRED REVIEW
"Seven Fires is, in its essence, a love letter to Argentina's obsession with fire and food."
