I reviewed the original Moro cookbook less than favourably - I felt it was a case of poor translation of recipes from restaurant to domestic kitchen as it suffered from uneven spicing and some odd proportions. This could not be less true of Casa Moro which is now my constant kitchen companion - perhaps this one succeeds because it's what the two Sams actually eat at home. The recipes are enticing, instructions clear and the flavours gorgeous - oh take me to Marrakesh now!
My favourite recipe from far too many favourites is the subtle and enticing layered dish called Chicken Fattee - OK it's a comedy name to us unsophisticated types, but it's a dizzyingly rich and smoky dish which has the added virtue of amply feeding 8 people from one medium sized chicken. Yum!
