Dezeen promotion: London's River Cafe restaurant, designed by architect Richard Rogers, has launched its annual limited-edition gift boxes containing a selection of the same Italian ingredients used daily in its kitchen.

The Michelin-starred restaurant serves regional and seasonal Italian food in Hammersmith, west London.

Each of the boldly-coloured gift boxes have been designed by graphic design studio Michael Nash Associates, and are packed with a selection of the Italian ingredients carefully sourced and used every day in the River Cafe kitchen.

This includes Pugliese plum tomatoes, Tuscan honey, anchovies, wild oregano, dried porcini and handmade chocolates.

In addition to food items, this year the boxes also include Italian seeds, a fluorescent pink True Grace candle, a set of bright linen napkins from Designers Guild and an Italian food guide.

The River Cafe's new season Tuscan extra virgin olive oil will also be in the hamper, as well as wines specially chosen from the restaurant's list by its sommelier.

The gift boxes are available in two sizes: medium, which costs £275, or large, which costs £600.

Ruth Rogers and the late Rose Gray founded the River Cafe together in 1987. The idea for the restaurant was first born when Ruth's husband, architect Richard Rogers, set up his practice in the converted warehouses at Thames Wharf.

Since its opening, the restaurant has received several accolades, including a Michelin star in 1997, which it has retained ever since.

Ruth Rogers and Gray published their first cookbook, The River Cafe Cookbook, in 1995, followed by 10 more cookbooks – all of which have been bestsellers.

The most recent book, River Cafe 30, by Ruth Rogers, Sian Wyn Owen and Joseph Trivelli was published in 2017, and marked 30 years since the River Cafe first opened its doors.
