Since opening the River Café in 1987, Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers have established themselves as the leading ladies of the London restaurant scene. Their simple Italian cuisine and emphasis on sourcing the finest ingredients was a breath of fresh air and the restaurant soon built up a cult following. It was also one of the first sites to use an open-plan kitchen, creating a unique and popular atmosphere. It was awarded a Michelin star in 1998 and famously spawned a number of chefs, most notably Jamie Oliver. Authors of an impressive line of cookbooks, their first, Italian Country Cookbook, was an instant bestseller, winning both the Glenfiddich Food Book of the year and the BCA Illustrated Book of the Year Award.
