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 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. On this week’s episode, Rogers hosts actor Jake Gyllenhaal. He and Ruthie discuss going to the food markets of LA as a child, the connection between restaurants and theatre, and Jake’s favourite dish in Venice.
