RIVER CAFE MILE­STONE

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - News -

Veal shin in Barbaresco. Squid with peas and an­chovies. The River Cafe on Lon­don’s River Thames has kept din­ers con­tent with its mod­ern Ital­ian cook­ing (and choco­late neme­sis cake) for an in­cred­i­ble 30 years. To cel­e­brate its an­niver­sary, River Cafe 30 by Ruth Rogers and chefs Joseph Triv­elli, Sian Wyn Owen and the late Rose Gray ($55, hbk, Pen­guin Ran­dom House) hits the shelves this month, fea­tur­ing 30 new recipes, along with pho­tos from per­sonal ar­chives. The book’s edges are em­bla­zoned neon pink to match the fa­mous wood oven.

Of­fic­ina Pro­fu­moFar­ma­ceu­tica di Santa Maria Novella – the name alone will leave you in need of a drink. Lucky this Floren­tine pro­ducer makes such fine Ital­ian liqueurs – this spicy, scar­lethued Alk­er­mes is a case in point. Try it with lime and ginger beer for an Ital­ian riff on a Moscow Mule, or in place of ver­mouth in your next Man­hat­tan. $100 for 500ml. franque.com.au
