Fred's

Opening: April.
Danielle Alvarez cooked at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California for nigh on four years and, after being recruited in May 2014 by Merivale, she has spent the last 18 months cooking everywhere from Coogee Pavilion to The Fish Shop while her own restaurant, Fred's, has been taking shape. At the March into Merivale launch, she previewed a panzanella of perfectly ripened summer tomatoes, lemon cucumbers and basil from First Farm Organics. Rich, thinly sliced and salted intercostal was grilled over charcoal and served with white beans and spring onion. It was a promising introduction. Fred's is set to open at the top of Oxford Street in Paddington. A wood-burning hearth is at the heart of the 60-seat restaurant, while there will also be a cocktail bar downstairs led by former Palmer & Co bartenders Sam Edgerton and Toby Marshall.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Pear, thyme and hazelnut tart

Thyme adds an intriguing savoury note to this burnt-butter tart, and poaching the pears in wine adds a further savoury element. Start this tart a day ahead to rest the pastry, and serve it with a dollop or two of creme fraiche.
