Knowing that people lead busy and demanding lives, Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers have made their innovative recipes even more accessible to those who love good food but have little time to prepare it. Recognising that the key to quick cooking is often in the ease of buying the ingredients, the recipes highlight the fresh produce you will need to shop for as well as the ingredients that are store cupboard essentials. Ruth and Rose then take you through simplified steps to cook great dishes that are bursting with flavour and style. To complement this new concept, the book has a fresh, dynamic design and superb photographs that will delight both new and established fans. Like River Cafe ‘graduates’ - most famously Jamie Oliver - you can learn the secrets of cooking fabulous food, but now it’s even easier.

Rose Gray, MBE (28 January 1939 – 28 February 2010[1]) was a British chef and cookery writer, who set up (with Ruth Rogers) The River Café in 1987. She won a Michelin star for this in 1998. It was here that the talents of Jamie Oliver were first spotted. She had a profound influence on a generation of celebrity chefs, including Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, the latter stating that she had had more influence on him than any other person he had worked with. She wrote a series of cookery books and presented a twelve-part television programme for Channel Four, “The Italian Kitchen”, in 1998.

Born Clemency Anne Rosemary Swann in Bedford, her father, Flight Lieutenant Clement Nelson Swann, and an elder sister were killed in a domestic fire six months before her birth. She was brought up in Scotland and Surrey. Her mother, (Elizabeth) Anne Lawrence, daughter of Sir William Lawrence, 3rd Baronet, settled in Guildford, and Rose studied at the Guildford College of Art, where she gained a BA in Fine Art. Her career as a professional chef began at Nell’s restaurant in New York, after which time she returned to London.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. In 2004 she became a “Breast Cancer Ambassador” and was also co-founder of the Cooks in Schools charity. After being given the all-clear, she was later diagnosed with a brain tumour in late 2009 or early 2010. She died in London, aged 71, on February 28, 2010. She had been working on what was to be her last book (with Ruth Rogers), the River Café Classic Italian Cookery Book. Her other works (many of which were co-authored with Ruth Rogers) include the River Café Cookbook, the River Café Cookbook Green and River Café Pocket Books: Salads and Vegetables. (Wikipedia)
