Much more than a simple catalogue of recipes, Casa Moro evokes Sam and Sam's extensive travels, their first discovery of Spain and Morocco and their house in the heart of Moorish Andalucia, taking the reader on a journey that resonates with delicious dishes, history and tradition.
The Moro restaurant was born out of a desire to cook within the wonderful tradition of Mediterranean food, and to explore exotic flavours little known in the UK. It is one of London's most talked about restaurants and - unsurprisingly - Moro: the Cookbook was a huge success. Its passionate insight into the culinary traditions of Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean and its strong vision and ethos captured readers' imaginations. Casa Moro introduces an equally impressive quality and diversity of recipes that are by no means inaccessible to the average cook; ranging from Asparagus with parsley and almonds; Moroccan courgette salad; Partridge escabeche; Garlic prawns with white wine and chilli; Chicken with pine nuts, saffron and fino sherry and Chestnut, almond and chocolate cake. Taking the range of flavours beyond those covered in their first cookbook, Sam and Sam Clark have created fresh and dynamic dishes that reflect Moro's ever-changing menu. Much more than a simple catalogue of recipes, Casa Moro evokes Sam and Sam's extensive travels, their first discovery of Spain and Morocco and their house in the heart of Moorish Andalucia, taking the reader on a journey that resonates with delicious dishes, history and tradition. With an entire chapter dedicated to the ancient ways and cooking of Andalucia and, more specifically, the village in which Sam and Sam live, this personal, evocative account exudes romance and is written and designed with palpable excitement and elegance.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"The best cookery books give you so much more than recipes: they tell the story of food, who cooks it and why. I loved the Moro Cookbook and was already hungry for second helpings. And this is a wonderful book, a pleasure to read and a reward to cook from. As More-ish as it is Moorish" -- Nigella Lawson * Evening Standard * "deeply personal in the best kind of way...if it doesn't spur even more of us to buy houses in Spain then nothing will" * The Daily Telegraph * "Fully the equal of the first Moro cookbook, it is both serious and seductive, packed with earthy recipes infused with smoke and spices" -- Christopher Hirst * The Independent * "a proper cookery book, with recipes you'll relish reading and making" * Time Out * "...quite the most exquisite, inspirational and downright delicious cookbook I have seen in ages" -- Nigel Slater * The Observer *
