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

Synopsis

In "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. Bordered by the River Lea and the Grand Union Canal, on its own little island, Manor Garden allotments may seem a world away from Moorish Spain or Morocco. However, once beyond the gates, you are transported to the Eastern Mediterranean by 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. It is here that Sam and Sam took on their very first allotment."Moro East" follows a year in the life of this East End allotment, reflected in recipes that are unusual without being daunting. Sam and Sam experiment with plants that can be eaten at various different stages of their growth; they include recipes for parts of the crop that might otherwise be discarded (celery leaves, pea shoots, poppy leaves), even making use of produce that does not ripen, such as green tomatoes.

They also offer recipes to use up the gluts of produce at the end of the growing season, such as chilli jam, tomato preserve and pickled garlic.Many of the recipes reflect everyday activities at the allotment - Turkish women rolling flatbreads or clipping the young vine leaves to make dolmades, families gathering to grill kebabs at the weekend - and the spirit of the community is captured in the photographs and the dishes. The 150 imaginative and seasonal recipes include Moro favourites and new combinations such as pigeon salad with figs, chickpeas and pomegranate molasses, tortilla with onion tops, and courgette and yoghurt soup. With the allotment set to be bulldozed in 2007 to make way for the 2012 Olympics, "Moro East" documents the last ever growing season for Sam and Sam and the unique men and women of Manor Garden allotments.
