THE RIVER CAFE COOK BOOK is one of the most influential cookbooks ever published and is the winner of both the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year and BCA Illustrated Book of the Year awards. Acclaimed for their innovative re-interpretation of Italian farmhouse cooking - CUCINA RUSTICA - at the River Cafe restaurant, Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers have produced an outstanding selection of Italian recipes with an emphasis on uncomplicated food which is vibrant with flavour. Beautifully illustrated, THE RIVER CAFE COOK BOOK is a wonderful guide to this approachable and exciting form of Italian cooking and a celebration of a great restaurant.
Thirty years after its doors first opened, The River Café remains one of London's most iconic restaurants, loved for its innovative Italian food. Pioneering chefs Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers together changed the face of Italian food in Britain, championing seasonality well ahead of their time from their West London kitchen, which won a Michelin star in 1998 and has kept it ever since. The restaurant helped launch the careers of Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, to name but two. Over the course of decades, Rose and Ruth visited Italy time and again, fascinated by the subtleties of dishes from the many different, and diverse, regions of the country. Their unique approach to Italian farmhouse cooking was learned from local mothers, grandmothers, cousins and wine makers who invited them into their kitchens and shared wisdom and precious family recipes. This book gathers together Rose and Ruth's personal interpretations of those heirloom recipes. It's a celebration of the real, classic food of Italy; the traditional, regional food they ate on their travels; and the food they went on to cook at the restaurant and at home. These are the recipes they became well known for, as well as some that are cooked less and less in Italy these days and which Rose and Ruth longed to preserve and pass on.
Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers's latest series of books is an essential addition to every kitchen. This definitive collection of fish recipes brings together some of the best dishes from the River Cafe, beautifully packaged with a striking design by the award-winning designer of the new Guardian Berliner, in a handy paperback format. With over 100 of their best fish and shellfish recipes to choose from, cooking seafood has never been so versatile as Ruth and Rose show you how to grill, roast, poach and cure fish as well as create wonderful salads, risottos and soups. They also offer you invaluable tips and advice throughout. From baked monkfish with rosemary, crème fraîche and vermouth to pan fried scallops with capers and sage there is something for every occasion. Whether you've never used a River Cafe book or are a committed fan, this book makes essential reading.

A year in the life of Instagram bread-baking sensation Tara Jensen as she teaches readers how to bake bread and pies, build the perfect fire to cook with, and live a simple, satisfying life. Why do so many people make pilgrimages to Tara Jensen’s North Carolina Smoke Signals Bakery? Why do over a 100,000 people follow her Instagram feed @bakerhands? It’s because Tara bakes the most exquisite bread in the US, using a wood-fired oven that she tends with her own two hands.

It could be something deeper: Tara Jensen has learned to live a simple life, close to the land that feeds her oven. In her first book, she shares her philosophy of simple living and her trove of recipes with others. A Baker’s Year takes readers month-by-month through the seasons at Smoke Signals for porridge and waffles in winter, crusty bread in spring, pies and pizza in the summer, and celebration cakes for end-of-the-year holidays. Along the way, Tara writes about how to live in a more peaceful world, shares stories from her own life, mourns romances lost, and celebrates the promise of a new relationship. Illustrated throughout with Tara's photographs and drawings, A Baker’s Year is a true American original destined to be a classic of cookbook shelves.

From Queen of Tarts to the nation's heart, Mary Berry shares her Recipe for Life. 'In the words of my father, my birth caused no end of trouble...' From the moment she came into the world - two weeks early, throwing her parents' lives into disarray - Mary has gracefully but firmly done things her own way. Born in 1935, in the city of Bath, Mary's childhood was a curious mix of idyllic picnics and ramblings, and alarming air raids; of a spirited and outdoorsy home life and a dreaded school existence. All nearly cut horribly short by an almost fatal bout of polio when she was thirteen, which isolated Mary in hospital, away from beloved family and friends for months. Recovery saw her turn to her one true passion - cookery. And so began a love affair that has - so far - spanned six remarkable decades; from demonstrating ovens in the early 1950s to producing glossy food magazines in the 60s and 70s, gradually becoming the country's most prolific and - many would say - best loved cookery writer. Until her emergence in the 21st century as a TV sensation and style icon on the Great British Bake Off. As a working mother, at the heart of a busy household, Mary became an expert at the art of juggling, even bringing her working life into her home with her Aga school. And there have been challenges, one terrible tragedy and many joys along the way. In this touching, evocative and fascinating memoir, we accompany Mary on her journey of nearly eighty years; a life lived to the full, with a wicked sense of fun and an eye for the absurd, it is the life of a delightfully traditional but thoroughly modern woman. Fans of The Great British Bake Off can't wait to get their hands on Mary Berry's Recipe for Life. Born in 1935, Mary has been teaching Britain how to cook for over half a century. Her far-reaching culinary career has taken her from recipe tester, cookery editor, author and entrepreneur to TV personality. Mary lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband Paul.
