Green Fire: Extraordinary Ways to Grill Fruits and Vegetables, from the Master of Live-Fire Cooking

"Looking for new recipe ideas for the freshly grown produce you get from the area's wonderful farms can be challenging. This is where chef Mallmann's new cookbook, Green Fire, comes in handy. His new cookbook contains ideas and recipes that will bring inspiration into your weekly CSA/farmer's market meal prep. His recipes contain few ingredients, the underlying idea of letting fresh ingredients 'speak for themselves.' Mallmann's style is creative and rustic, expressed in recipes such as 'charred tomatoes with garlic and thyme,' 'rescoldo beets with orange, fennel, and dill salsa,' among others.  Looking for cooking inspiration? Pickup a copy of Green Fire or one of the other Francis Mallmann cookbooks."

World-famous chef Francis Mallmann, known for his live-fire meat cookery, transforms vegetables and fruits with fire in his first book of vegetarian recipes.

A groundbreaking new approach to grilling vegetables and fruit from the author of Seven Fires and Mallmann on Fire

Green Fire is an extraordinary vegetarian cookbook, as Mallmann brings his techniques, creativity, instinct for bold flavors, and decades of experience to the idea of cooking vegetables and fruits over live fire. Blistered tomatoes reinvigorate a classic Caprese salad. Eggplants are buried whole in the coals—a technique called rescoldo—then dance that fine line between burned and incinerated until they yield an ineffable creaminess made irresistible with a slather of parsley, chile, and aioli. Brussels sprout leaves are scorched and served with walnuts; whole cabbages are sliced thick, grilled like steaks, and rubbed with spice for a mustard-fennel crust. Corn, fennel, artichokes, beets, squash, even beans—this is the vegetable kingdom, on fire.

The celebrated Patagonian chef, known for his mastery of flame and meat, the chef who romanced the food world with an iconic image of a whole cow dressed and splayed out over licking flames, is returning to the place where his storied career began—the garden and all its bounty. It’s his new truth: the transformation wrought by flame, coals, and smoke on a carrot or peach is nothing short of alchemy.

And just as he’s discovered that a smoky, crackling-crusted potato cooked on the plancha is as sublime as the rib-eye he used to serve it next to, Mallmann’s also inspired by another truth: we all need to cut down on consuming animals to ensure a healthier future for both people and the planet. Time to turn the fire “green.”

The fruit desserts alone confirm live fire’s ability to transform and elevate any ingredient. Mallmann roasts whole pineapples, grills grapes, chars cherries, and then finds just the right unexpected match—melted cheese, toasted hazelnuts, Campari granita—to turn each into a simple yet utterly entrancing dish.

Cooking with fire demands both simplicity and perfection. But the results are pure magic. By using this oldest of cooking techniques, you’ll discover fruits and vegetables pushed to such a peak of flavor it’s as if they’d never been truly tasted before.
