Samuel and Samantha Clark share a passion for the intense flavours of the food of Spain, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean. The word “Moro”, meaning “Moor” in Spanish, encapsulates much of their style of cooking -- a heady blend of Arabic and Hispanic dishes that offer warm spices and fiery sauces, slow-cooked earthy stews and delicate flavourings.

Sam and Sam Clark are the chef-owners of Moro, one of London’s most talked-about restaurants. In Moro: The Cookbook, Sam and Sam have distilled the restaurant’s most accomplished and delicious recipes for home cooking. Authenticity is the key and their food remains true to the origins of each dish. Most of these recipes are very simple -- it is the resulting flavours that are wonderfully complex.
