The Food Lovers' Cookbook Collection
River Café Italian Kitchen by Gray and Rogers
The book details a collection of recipes that Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers cook at their justifiably famous River Café in London. We thoroughly enjoy eating the refined Italian food based on perfect ingredients that are presented simply.
Each recipe is written very carefully and the ingredients are set out clearly and precisely. We find that the recipes always 'work'. They are packed with flavour and sometimes employ surprising techniques.
However, to get the most out of this book you should read the introductions to each section where additional information about key ingredients or important cooking techniques are discussed.
If you only try one recipe from this book try the stunning Spaghetti with Lemon - it is sensational.
We also like River Café Cookbook Green which looks at seasonal vegetables month by month.
