One of the most acclaimed chefs on the planet, Ruth Rogers has spent 30 years at the helm of The River Cafe London, the restaurant she and Rose Gray opened in 1987. Chef Ruth talks to us about her passion for Italian food, her famous chocolate cake, her perseverance, and her approach to running a humane restaurant. We also talk about Rose, Ruth’s friend and business partner, who passed away in 2010 and left a strong mark on both the restaurant and Ruth’s life. Ruth’s new cookbook, River Cafe London, is a celebration of its 30 years, its amazing Italian food, and the strong women who made it such an epic place.

Thank you to Emmi cheeses from Switzerland, Le Cordon Bleu, and Bob’s Red Mill for supporting today’s show.
