Three Moro cookbooks

If you’ve ever been to Moro or Morito restaurants, or even better had the pleasure of tasting Sam and Sam Clark’s food at festivals such as Port Eliot, you’ll know how delicious their food really is. To celebrate ten years since the publication of their first cookbook – how time flies, Moro opened in 1997 but it is still one of our favourite restaurants – they are bringing out a special paperback edition of all three cookbooks next month. The first book, Moro, reveals the secrets behind their most popular restaurant dishes; the second, Casa Moro, has recipes from Andalucia where they have a home and the third, Moro East, followed a year in the life of their allotment.

And to give you a mouth watering idea of what the books are like, they have picked out some of their favourite recipes such as scrambled eggs with prawns and asparagus, lamb with chickpea puree and hot mint sauce and fresh spiced cauliflower.

Restaurant: Morito

There aren’t many places in London where you can get great food that starts from as little as £1. OK, it may be olives, anchovies and onions for £1, but at Morito, even the main dishes—think seared pork fillet, octopus with salpicon salad, and quail’s egg and jamon—rarely cost more than £6.50. The latest venture from chefs Sam and Sam Clark, of the next door Moro, month-old Morito is more of a quick-paced, down-at-heel Spanish tapas bar than its more grown up, much loved neighbour. With its orange formica bar and wooden stools, Morito isn’t luxurious but with food this good, and this cheap, who cares.
