South American celebrated chef Francis Mallmann is set to make his London debut at Wolfgang Puck’s Cut at 45 Park Lane on October 3 for a three-night pop-up – where six-course tasting menus (£280 per person) will showcase bold Argentine flavours, complemented by wine pairings from his native country.

Chef Mallmann’s preference for wood-fire cooking – and his training in some of France’s finest kitchens – come to the fore in several signature dishes that will be served in the art-deco-inspired restaurant, including smashed crusty Andean potato with smoked butter and caviar and a corn humita with basil, which is the chef’s unique take on the traditional tamale. Other creative courses will include plancha avocado with salmon confit, a sweetbread served on eggplant Milanese, and a slow-roasted Rubia Gallega rib-eye on the bone. The feast will be capped off with “desserts from the River Plate” – a homage to the river region of Uruguay, which is home to Mallmann’s Garzón restaurant.

The menu – created in collaboration with the Cut’s executive chef David McIntyre – can also be paired with select wines (price on request) from Bodega Catena Zapata, a family-owned Argentine winery chosen by Alex Resnik, a senior advisor to Wolfgang Puck, who also hails from Argentina. The full-bodied red wines, including Zapata’s famous Malbec, have been specially imported for the pop-up, and Resnik (a close friend of Mallmann) will be on hand to greet guests at the event.
