River Cafe 30

Simple Italian recipes from an iconic restaurant




Simple, modern, Italian cooking from one of the world's most iconic restaurants on its 30th birthday.


From the Fortnum & Mason 2018 Food and Drink Award winner: 'One of the most beautiful hardbacks we’ve ever seen' The Evening Standard

An iconic restaurant.
A celebratory cookbook.
Simply delicious Italian homecooking at its best.

With River Cafe 30, Ruth Rogers and her head-chefs, Joseph Trivelli and Sian Wyn Owen, invite you to join them in marking 30 years of memories and good food at London's The River Cafe.

Since 1987, The River Cafe has championed simple, good quality Italian cooking. Ruth, Joseph and Sian have revisited and updated the best dishes from the first blue cookbook and introduce 30 new favourites from the menus today - Panzanella, Ravioli with Ricotta, Raw Tomato and Basil, Risotto with Porcini and Girolles, Braised Beef Fillet and, of course, Chocolate Nemesis.

Including Ruth's memories and unseen archive images, Rose's careful tips and hand-drawn illustrations, new photography by Jean Pigozzi and Matthew Donaldson, bespoke menu artworks from the restaurant's friends and 120 classic Italian recipes, River Cafe 30 encapsulates the essence of the restaurant and its food.

This is a beautiful cookbook of recipes you'll want to cook time and again - a must-have for all food lovers.
