Ruthie's Table 4: Wolfgang Puck

I'm often asked who inspired us when we opened The River Cafe in 1987. Wolfgang Puck is the one of the answers. A few months ago, he came to The River Cafe for dinner with his family, and to everyone working there it felt like a visit from the Gods. To me it was a visit from a mentor, a star, and a friend. 

I went to speak with him at his restaurant at the Hotel Bel-Air in LA, where we ate pizza and talked about his life as a chef, his childhood memories and much more. 

Join us for this episode of Ruthie’s Table 4: Wolfgang Puck.

Ruthie's Table 4: Brian Chesky

'In November, I sat down in New York to talk to Brian Chesky, the co-founder and CEO of Airbnb. Now, I've never stayed in an Airbnb, but then again, Brian has never been to the River Cafe.

Ruthie's Table 4: Martha Stewart

Imagine for a moment, you are Martha Stewart. It is 1992 and you are the most important woman in the world of food. You say your best quality is your curiosity. So, maybe it was that curiosity which made you drive 25 minutes  to a small restaurant in a warehouse on the Thames, which had opened just a few years before, run by two women whose only experience was cooking for their families. 

In this special live episode of the podcast, Ruthie sits with Martha in front of a live audience celebrating the launch of The River Cafe Look Book in New York - talking about books, and about each other.

Ruthie's Table 4: Eddie Redmayne

A year ago, I used every bit of access and influence to get tickets to Cabaret for one reason only - to see Eddie Redmayne the star of the show. And last week, conquering my enormous fear of being afraid, I watched him in the Good Nurse and was unnerved how beautifully he made a mass murderer not only empathetic, but almost loveable. All of us in The River Café know Eddie as an enthusiastic eater.

On this episode we discuss his life through food but not before we put him to work in the kitchen, fulfilling his life’s dream and making pizzas with our chef, Jessica Filbey.

Ruthie's Table 4: Look Book Special

Two years after starting the River Café, Rose Gray and I were asked by a publisher to do a cookbook. We replied sternly that we were chefs, not writers. But the more we thought about it, we realized that being a chef is about communicating. 30 years and 12 cookbooks later, we have just published our newest The River Café Lookbook for Kids of All Ages.

It's a collaboration between a photographer, designers and chefs. When you hold any book in your hands, there's a story to be told about how it was created. And that's what we're going to do on today's special episode of Ruthie's Table 4.

Ruthie's Table 4: Steve McQueen

Sitting here in The River Café on a sunny Monday morning with chefs in the kitchen making ravioli with girolles, and waiters laying tables in the garden, the uncertain world we live in feels miles away.

The artist and filmmaker Steve McQueen does not separate the world of beauty and the world of suffering in any of his work. Political oppression, slavery, sexual inequality.

Steve and I met in 1999 when he won the Turner Prize for his radical video art, and we once had dinner together with President Obama.

It was clear that the only person President Obama was interested in talking to was Steve McQueen and he didn’t want to share him with anyone else. Now, a few years later, I finally have Steve McQueen all to myself, and being a generous person, will share him with you.

As part of our limited art series we are reposting our favourite episode from season 1 just in case you missed it the first time round. This is a conversation about food between two friends - Ruthie Rogers, a chef, and Tracey Emin, an artist.

Ruthie's Table 4: Jonas Wood

In 2015, Jonas Wood was in London for his show at Gagosian Gallery. He came to The River Cafe for lunch, leaving behind the gift of a beautiful drawing on River Cafe stationery—a spiky long cactus, its leaves reaching out over the logo.

Jonas brought LA to London, and a cactus to The River Cafe. Ruthie and Jonas promised to meet one day to talk about food, family and art. Six years later, London came to LA to record a podcast.

Listen here to their time together via the link in our bio.

Over the last year, I’ve had the great luck to sit with 46 fabulous guests on our podcast ‘Ruthie's Table 4’ - talking about food, family, and memories. Everyone has read a recipe from a River Cafe cook book and shared stories about cooking and eating in their favourite restaurants. In September we will be back for Season 2.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Wolfgang Puck, Mel Brooks and many more will be with me. Join us then - your table will be ready and waiting.

 

 

For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home.

 

On Ruthie’s Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers.

Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks. 

Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe’s open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant. You are invited to take a seat at this intimate table and join the conversation.

Ruthie's Table 4: Danny Huston

In front of the camera and behind, Danny Huston has spent his life in movies.

Danny, son of John Huston, grew up watching rushes, travelling to film locations, and meeting all the great actors. Later directing, producing and acting in films and television series: Mr North, Fade to Black, The Constant Gardener, Succession and much more.

I knew Danny loves food, but nothing could have impressed me more than when, of all The River Cafe recipes, he chose, toast.

Toast - or rather as the Italians call it bruschetta - was what made me want to cook Italian food when I first tasted it in Florence in 1971.

Danny and I had much to discuss as we sat together in the River Cafe. On Episode 45 of Ruthie's Table 4, Danny and I spoke about food, music, family, cooking, travelling – and more.

Ruthie's Table 4: Valerie Biden Owens

Valerie Biden Owen’s family are typical Americans in some ways, but not that typical. Her brother Joe is the President of the United States.  In today's River Cafe Table 4 she and Ruthie will be talking about food and family, from the kitchen table of her childhood home to the White House dining room and Air Force One.

Ruthie's Table 4: Darren Walker

Recently a friend led me across a crowded room with the words—“Talk to this man about food; he is passionate!”

So, I did  - and put away all my questions about the dynamic, social and radical philanthropic work that Darren Walker does as CEO of the Ford Foundation. After 10 minutes of stories and memories of his childhood and the food he ate in Lafayette, Louisiana, I asked him to pause suggesting we do this on Ruthie's Table 4.

And here we are — in the restaurant ready to carry on the conversation.

For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians.

Ruthie's Table 4: Josh Berger

When Ruthie was asked to debut a live podcast, her first call was to Josh Berger.

Ruthie's Table 4: Austin Butler

My favourite line in this conversation from our 41st episode of River Cafe Table 4, is Austin Butler saying he and I are ‘family’.

Austin arrived straight from playing Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s movie ‘Elvis’ in January 2021 and we met soon after.

London was just out of a COVID lockdown and, needing an immediate tradition, we decided to have dinner at my home every Sunday night with the same small group of friends. Austin would arrive early and cook with me, and this is what we did, every Sunday, for 39 weeks.

Austin is a brilliant actor, a beautiful singer, a poet, and an extraordinary friend.

Ruthie's Table 4: Adam Schiff

When Congressman Adam Schiff came to London, giving a dinner for him in our home was a great honour. On Episode 40 of Ruthie's Table 4, Ruthie and Adam talk about the food he grew up with, the food he cooks for his family, and the food he finds personally comforting.

Ruthie's Table 4: Sian Wyn Owen & Joseph Trivelli

Everybody is interested in process. How do actors memorize their lines, how does an airplane stay up in the sky?

The question I'm most often asked is how does a restaurant work?

How do you know how many portions of sea bass to order? What do you do when a chef calls in sick?

The answers to these questions ? It's people. And two very important people for me are Sian Wyn Owen and Joseph Travelli, Executive Chefs in the River Cafe.

Ruthie's Table 4: Mark Carney

Mark Carney does more than you can imagine – previously Governor of the Bank of England and the Bank of Canada, he is now UN Special Envoy for Climate Action, UK government’s climate-finance advisor, and Vice Chairman of Brookfield Asset Management.

Mark runs miles before the rest of us have had our first espresso. He sings, writes a best-selling book – Value(s)  - cooks for his four children and is a master of the technique for grilling a Bistecca Fiorentina to perfection. 

Listen to him and Ruthie on Episode 37 of Ruthie's Table 4 discussing all that he does, and more.

Ruthie's Table 4: Afua Hirsch

Having read Afua Hirsch’s political memoir Brit(ish), I was both moved and informed. So I asked her if we might have a conversation for Ruthie's Table 4. 

 

Anyone who’s watched her documentaries, read her articles, or participated in her grassroots organising, knows that Afua’s insights on racism, inclusion, and British history is radical, brave and brilliant.

 

Before going into the restaurant for lunch together, we will talk about what her Ghanain grandmothers cooked for her as a teenager in London, the food she prepares for her daughter, and much more.

Ruthie's Table 4: Erdem Moralıoğlu

Often when you meet someone in a foreign country there is immediate friendship.

Erdem, the designer of beautiful clothes, and his husband, Philip Joseph, and I were in Mexico City in 2019 staying in the same hotel.

They were days of discoveries, searching for the perfect Tequila, walking miles to Niddo - our favourite breakfast spot - eating every tortilla, tacho and tamale we could find.  

A friendship that began on vacation has followed us home, to London, where we are continually searching for meals to share together.

That’s what we’re going to do today.

Ruthie's Table 4: Christiane Amanpour

There is no such thing as a simple phone call with my beautiful friend Christiane Amanpour. Asking, as I did yesterday, where she’s been she answers “Ukraine”, asking where she is going, she says, “Afghanistan”.

This is what it is like having a fearless friend you love, who puts herself in danger, reporting facts, holding people to account, and telling the truth from wherever she is and whoever she is talking to. 

Christiane goes on biking trips, retreats to her house in the Isle de Re, and flies to New York for a day to see her son. The food of Persia is her passion.

Today, I’m going to interview the most brilliant interviewer there is, today I’m the fearless one.

Ruthie's Table 4: Rag'n'Bone Man

A few months ago, I walked into a very busy River Café lunch to be greeted by a buzz from the young waiters and chefs working here. They were incredibly excited – “Ruthie, Ruthie” they said, “Rag’n’Bone Man is on Table 4, why don’t you ask him to be on your podcast”. I personally have a rule not to interrupt anyone’s lunch, much less Britain’s most successful and brilliant blues singer, but this time I broke that rule. And here we are today, on a spring evening, in The River Cafe garden – about to get to know each other.

In this episode, Ruthie and Cary talk about the Japanese and Swedish food he grew up with, eating spiders in Cambodia, and his favourite River Cafe recipe that reminds him of a dramatic crime scene. 


For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home.

 

On River Cafe Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers.

Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks. 

Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe’s open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant. You are invited to take a seat at this intimate table and join the conversation.
