Overview

Now in paperback, an exquisite recipe collection celebrating the wonderful traditions of Spanish and North African food
 
The proprietors of Moro have created fresh and dynamic dishes that reflect their restaurant's ever-changing menu ranging from Asparagus with Parsley and Almonds; Moroccan Courgette Salad; and Chicken with Pine Nuts, Saffron and Fino Sherry to Chestnut, Almond and Chocolate cake. Yet this is much more than a simple catalog of recipes; it 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. Includes metric measurements.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
"The Clarks look happy, their food seems so lusty and pure that you want to climb into the photos and dig in."
Food & Wine
[The Clarks] take the cuisine of Spain back to its Moorish roots for the ultimate ethnic historical dining. Sublime.
From the Publisher
"Quite the most exquisite, inspirational and downright delicious cookbook I have seen in ages."  —Nigel Slater, author, Tender: A Cook and His Vegetable Patch

"Fully the equal of the first Moro cookbook, it is both serious and seductive, packed with earthy recipes infused with smoke and spices."  —Independent

What People are saying about this

Nigella Lawson
...a wonderful book, a pleasure to read and a reward to cook from. As More–ish as it is Moorish.
