A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Ruthie’s Table 4

iHeart / Online / Podcasts

Julia Child taught us that there’s something endlessly watchable about food being sliced, diced, and broiled on TV, but you’d be forgiven for questioning if the subject is similarly suited for audio. Yet Ruthie Rogers, the London-based chef and owner of the reassuringly hard-to-book River Cafe, proves there’s an exception to every rule with the second season of her podcast Ruthie’s Table 4. Having already chatted about everything from comfort food to first-date menus with the likes of Jeff Goldblum, Al Gore, Glenn Close, and Lily Allen, Rogers understands that food tells a larger story about a person. And as with the 46 warm and revealing conversations of the first season, this next installment promises rare insights and unexpected anecdotes like the full day Gwyneth Paltrow spent disemboweling anchovies in her chef’s whites, or how Eddie Redmayne found a sliver of empathy while playing a serial killer, all between bites of Puntarelle alla Romana. —Bridget Arsenault
