Danielle Alvarez's recipes

Danielle Alvarez, a chef of singular tastes, is all about celebrating restraint and seasonality, simplicity and freshness. She's one of the hottest talents on the pans in Australia, and though she may have Cuban heritage, her menu at Fred's in Sydney (think of it as a trip to Berkeley via Paddington) is pure San Francisco, thanks to the many years she spent honing her skills at Alice Waters' Chez Panisse.
