Moro the Cookbookby Samuel Clark
Synopses & Reviews
Samuel and Samantha Clark share a passion for the intense flavours of the food of Spain, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean. The word “Moro”, meaning “Moor” in Spanish, encapsulates much of their style of cooking — a heady blend of Arabic and Hispanic dishes that offer warm spices and fiery sauces, slow-cooked earthy stews and delicate flavourings.
Sam and Sam Clark are the chef-owners of Moro, one of Londons most talked-about restaurants. In Moro: The Cookbook, Sam and Sam have distilled the restaurants most accomplished and delicious recipes for home cooking. Authenticity is the key and their food remains true to the origins of each dish. Most of these recipes are very simple — it is the resulting flavours that are wonderfully complex.
The Moro menu encompasses dishes that originated in Spain and dishes from the Muslim Mediterranean, two areas linked historically by the Moors' 700-year occupation of Spain. The authors' Moro restaurant opened in the Clerkenwell district of London in October 1997.
The Moro menu encompasses dishes that originated in Spain and dishes from the Muslim Mediterranean, two areas linked in history by the Moors' 700-year occupation of Spain. The book is much more than a simple catalogue of recipes—the chefs also communicate the romance and tradition inherent in each dish and their writing is informed by an intimate knowledge of long-established culinary and cultural traditions. In a market saturated with impersonal restaurant cookbooks, this book has a refreshingly different feel. It oozes character and is written and designed with palpable passion and insight.
Born out of a desire to bring the wonderful tradition of Mediterranean food to the UK, the Moro restaurant was an immediate hit with British culinary critics.
Now the Moro’s award winning chefs, the married team of Sam and Sam (Samantha) Clark, share their restaurant’s most delicious and successful recipes in Moro: The Cookbook.
Most of the recipes are simple, but the resulting flavours are wonderfully complex. Perfectly capturing the region of origin — Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean — The Moro Cookbook will entice cooks everywhere to discover more about this rich, exotic cuisine.
