Publishers Text

Danielle Alvarez is happiest in the kitchen, whether in restaurants like Chez Panisse, where she honed her craft, or at home, where she spends endless hours nurturing it.

In Recipes for a Lifetime of Beautiful Cooking, Danielle's focus is the meals she prepares at home, and communicating the ways in which cooking is one of the simplest ways to create and share joy.

Her guiding philosophy in the kitchen (and life!) is abandon and restraint: applying that to individual recipes, and the bigger picture as shaped by the ebb and flow of weather, moods, time, budgets and tastes. In joyful collaboration with writer and friend Libby Travers, Danielle shares the ideas and techniques she has gleaned from years with great chefs and great producers, as well as gently emboldening readers to feel confident to play the daily cards they are dealt.

Across seven chapters, 100-plus recipes, insightful asides on the stories of key ingredients and multiple lyrical and instructive short essays, the book celebrates Danielle's Cuban heritage, her time spent cooking in California and then Australia, her love of French and Italian food and all the incredible Asian influences that have coloured her cooking journey. Wherever readers live, if they have a basic grocery store, they can make most of the recipes (or work with the substitutions). The ideas are designed to help them find happiness in their kitchen; with the best that is available to them.

A lifetime of beautiful home cooking starts here.
