Lunch with River Café founder Ruth Rogers, Thursday 25 October
This autumn marks 30 years since the River Café first opened its doors on the banks of the Thames. Specialising in simple, stylish, wholly authentic Italian cuisine the like of which the UK had yet to become familiar with, the River Café kitchen fast become a training ground for chefs such as Jamie Oliver, April Bloomfield, Sam and Sam Clark and Theo Randall. In 1996, River Café founders Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray (who, sadly, passed away in 2010) published their iconic blue cookbook: a global bestseller that redefined the cookbook genre. Today, Ruth’s new book River Café 30 celebrates three decades of Italian home cooking, revisits the River Café blue book’s ‘greatest hits’ and introduces new recipes and new anecdotes from Ruth Rogers.
Fancy meeting a legend in real life? Join Ruth and co-author Sian Wyn Owen for a Tuscan-themed lunch at Christ Church in Bath on Thursday 25 October, when she’ll talk all about the new River Café book and celebrate three decades of River Café memories and exceptional food. Tickets cost £15 to include lunch and £15 off River Café 30, or £28 to include lunch, wine and a copy of the book, but be warned: space is limited, and tickets are set to sell out fast; book yours today.Categorised in: News
