River Cafe 30.
This book commemorates the thirtieth anniversary of one of the most influential restaurants in London. Before Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray opened what was a nine table lunchtime-only canteen for the architects and designers who work in the converted Thames Wharf warehouse in Hammersmith that houses the restaurant, there were only fake trattorias serving generic Italian fare. The River Cafe introduced the notion of regional Italian cooking to the UK.
It has over 120 recipes - revisiting favourites from the first iconic River Cafe blue cookbook, updated for home cooks today, and introducing 30 new recipes, with new tips and anecdotes. Written by Ruth Rogers and head chefs Sian Wyn Owen and Joseph Trivelli, and designed by Michael Nash Associates with new photography by Matthew Donaldson and Jean Pigozzi, River Cafe 30 is peppered throughout with previously unseen archive material, exclusive bespoke menu artworks from friends of the restaurant and is finished with sprayed page edges in the River Cafe's trademark pink. This is a must-have for all food lovers.
