With River Cafe Cook Book Easy Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers pioneered a new approach to cooking and eating. Knowing that people lead busy and demanding lives, they made their innovative Italian recipes even more accessible to those who love good food but have little time to prepare it. Recognising that the key to quick cooking is often in the ease of buying the ingredients, the easy recipes highlight the fresh produce you will need to shop for as well as the ingredients that are store cupboard essentials. Rose and Ruth then take you through simplified steps to cook great Italian dishes that are bursting with flavour and style.
To complement this new concept, the cookbook has a fresh, dynamic design and superb photographs that will delight both new and established fans. Like River Cafe 'graduates' - most famously Jamie Oliver - you can learn the secrets of cooking fabulous Italian food, but now it's even easier.
Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray created the Michelin-starred River Cafe in 1987 and wrote their first book, The River Cafe Cookbook, in 1995. It was a game-changing Italian cookery manual and a global bestseller, which they followed with several more bestselling cookbooks. In 2010, shortly before Rose's death, they were appointed MBE. Many of the new generation of renowned chefs, such as April Bloomfield, Samuel and Samantha Clark and Jamie Oliver, began their careers in the kitchens of the River Cafe.
