Join the guest list

Join the master of the flames on location in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands to learn and enjoy his many varieties of wood-fire cookery, surrounded by the spectacular natural landscapes at Alladale Wilderness Reserve.

Francis views food as he does almost everything else, as an aesthetic expression. And on this Hosted Experience with the master of open-fire cooking, there’s much more than the unforgettable dining. There is the learning during the masterclass, the fire-side chats and the nature walks for a full-board Winter menu of seasonal produce, where you’ll never taste a more succulent steak or a heartier stew. All prepared by your host, Chef Francis Mallmann.

Unforgettable Meals Where Fire Plays its Magic

“The most beautiful thing about cooking is the silent language. You can’t write about it. I can’t teach it. That’s why there are so many cookbooks but not much success out of cookbooks.”
— Francis Mallmann —

Francis grew up in Patagonia, where the snow capped peaks of the Andes tower over everything. In this vast landscape, fire brought everyone together and was used for warmth, hot water and feeding the kitchen stove for every day meals. Now, Mallmann spends a lot of time at his home on a small remote island in La Plata lake, always attached to the majestic Andes Mountains and inspired by the magical landscapes of Patagonia.

All the way from Argentina, it is only here at Alladale Wilderness Reserve with its rugged terrain, dramatic glens, colourful hills, glistening rivers, and herds of majestic red deer that Francis would be comfortable, wrapped in nature and at home with the elements.

This part of the Scottish Highlands is truly wild and the reserve team works hard to enhance its wilder side to its former glory by replanting lush forest and reintroducing original Highland plant and animal species over its sheer size 23,000-acre (90 sq.km). A dedicated labour of love and passion for the natural world that makes it the perfect spot for Francis Mallmann to host this one-off delicious travel experience.
