The third season of Mind of a Chef, the PBS travel-documentary is now underway. In advance of the second episode, here's a teaser clip showing chef Edward Lee traveling to La Isla, a remote island in the foothills of the Andes. Amidst a beautiful backdrop of pristine wilderness, Lee meets Francis Mallmann, a chef who put Argentina's fine-dining scene on the map. Mallmann takes Lee to a cabin in the woods and explains, "This is sort of a secret place in my dreams, wherever I am in the world I am always dreaming to be here." The two discuss seven different ways to use fire, and the gaucho way of cooking.
