Francis Mallmann: in the hot seat
For Issue 14 of Club Oenologique, we’ve got our first-ever guest editor in the hot seat: chef Francis Mallmann. The pioneering Patagonian chef and wine-and-spirits connoisseur shares his philosophy on good drink and the art of enjoyment. Throughout the magazine we explore themes central to Mallmann’s personal passions. You’ll find coal and flames on these pages as we unpack the live-fire cooking trend in restaurants around the world and delve into the ancestral fire pits employed to give mezcal its signature smokiness. See what’s at the cutting edge of South American winemaking as we look to a lighter style emerging in the glass in Argentina and introduce the latest wave of rising stars across the continent. We have a vertical tasting of Mallmann’s favourite Armagnac in this issue’s Review section – in among the usual mix of rare and wonderful things to drink. And for travel inspiration, we head to the Uruguay wine region the chef helped put on the map, and share a series of restaurants based on wineries across Latin America, yet another trend kickstarted by our maverick guest editor.
