In the evolution of Canadian cuisine there’s been country-style; cuisine minceur; deconstructed dishes and whole menus bent out of shape with gelatins, foams and a myriad of other concoctions. Cacao Chef Jefferson Alvarez is taking his notion of wild and local to a whole new iteration. Alexandra Gill, the Globe and Mail’s west coast food critic wrote, “This uncommonly innovative restaurant is already defying expectations and breaking delicious, new ground.” After many years of working in the kitchens of others, this is his own. And his Latin roots are showing as they form the flavour foundations of B.C. seafood, venison, beef and lots of vegetables.
