From the cover: “It was while travelling through Spain and Morocco on their three-month honeymoon that Sam and Sam Clark first discovered and defined what was to become their philosophy of food. A major influence has been the small village in the heart of Moorish Andalucia where Casa Moro, the name of their little Spanish house, has become their second home.

Moro: The Cookbook explored the culinary traditions of Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean. In their second book, the Clarks develop this theme, but approach it from a much more personal point of view. They explain in greater detail how they are constantly encountering new flavours and flavour combinations.

Ranging from infinitely variable starters and tapas to the slow-cooked meat stews and fresh salads of Morocco, through home-curing and wild foods, the book is, however, very much more than a simple catalogue of recipes. It is a personal and highly evocative account of a culinary journey that resonates with history, tradition and, most important of all, delicious dishes. With an entire chapter dedicated to the ancient ways and cooking of Andalucia and, more specifically, the village in which Sam and Sam live, their account exudes romance and is written and designed with palpable passion and elegance.”
