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.

Chilled recipes for summer

When the mercury is rising, step away from the oven. These recipes are either raw, chilled or frozen and will cool you down in a snap.

Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Shark Bay Wild Scampi Caviar

Bright blue scampi roe is popping up on menus across Australia. Here's why it's so special.

Summer feta recipes

Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.

Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."
