Product Description


"They should put a plaque on the Olympic stadium: Sam and Sam's wonderful recipes were born here!" (Delia Smith)

"Moro East is an exciting collection of recipes - some very simple - enhanced by intimate hints picked up by Sam and Sam from their varied, colourful, allotment friends and their Spanish neighbours. A lively conversation between gardeners and cooks." (Rose Gray)

"Any book by Sam and Sam Clark makes for essential reading and essential eating...stunning" (The Sunday Times)

"Anyone familiar with the two previous books of Spanish/Moroccan dishes by the owners of Moro restaurant can be assured this move to the Eastern Mediterranean is equally inspiring...a feast lies in wait" (The Independent)

"Truly inspirational" (Sainsbury's Magazine) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

The third cookbook in the critically acclaimed Moro series finds Sam & Sam Clark going back to their roots and growing their own produce in an East End allotment

From the Inside Flap

In their third book, Moro East, Sam and Sam Clark renew their passion for the food of Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean, but this time they find their inspiration a little closer to home ... in an East End allotment.

Manor Garden allotments may seem a world away from Moorish Spain or Morocco, but once beyond the gates you are transported to the Eastern Mediterranean via a community of Turks and Cypriots who cultivate and cook an extraordinary range of ingredients, many of which are integral to the food served at Moro.

Moro East follows a year in the life of this allotment. The inspiring and imaginative recipes use fresh, seasonal produce, and range from Moro favourites to the food Sam and Sam cook on the allotment. Tragically, the Manor Garden allotments were bulldozed in 2007 to make way for the 2012 Olympics, so Moro East documents the last ever growing season for the Clarks and the unique Hackney community.

From the Back Cover

About the Author

Moro restaurant was born out of a desire to cook within the wonderful tradition of Mediterranean food, and to explore exotic flavours then little known in the UK. It is one of the most talked-about restaurants of our time, and has consistently won awards and plaudits since it opened in 1997.

Moro: the Cookbook was a huge success, its passionate insight into the culinary traditions of Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean capturing readers' imaginations. The follow-up, Casa Moro, offered a personal account of flavours and food centred on Sam and Sam's house in a village in Moorish Andalucia.

Moro East is the evocative, back-to-the-earth story of their decision to grow their own produce in London, a journal of life within a unique community and the inspiration it provides for Sam and Sam's cooking.
