Chef Francis Mallmann

Francis Mallmann (born 1956) is an Argentine celebrity chef, author, and restaurateur who specializes in Argentine, and especially Patagonian cuisine, with a focus on various Patagonian methods of barbecuing food. 
Mallmann was one of the chefs featured in the documentary "Chef's Table."
Mallman began working in television in the early 1980's. Between 1987 and 1996, the program was recorded in his restaurant and, in the summer months, in Punta del Este. His visibility in television significantly influenced the reach and scope of his work.
Mallmann is especially known for his use of cooking techniques indigenous to Argentina, especially Patagonia, where he resides.
In November 2015, Francis Mallmann opened his first restaurant outside South America, Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann in Miami, Florida at the Faena Hotel. The restaurant showcases Mallmann's signature dishes and cooking techniques, and serves authentic Argentine cuisine. Mallmann was present at the grand opening, and visits the restaurant often.
Not much vegetarian fare at Mallman's restaurants though...
