About Moro East

Publisher Web Link: http://www.eburypublishing.co.uk/

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. (http://www.eburypublishing.co.uk/)

About Sam & Sam Clark

Author Web Link: http://www.moro.co.uk/

It was an unusual route which led to the establishment of Moro in the spring of 1997: two cooks, Sam and Sam Clark, shared a desire to discover the abundant flavours of the Southern Mediterranean. They married, bought a camper van and set off on a three month journey. They drove through Spain, Morocco and the Sahara, learning, observing and tasting along the way.

As they travelled, the two Sams experimented with local ingredients on their small gas hob, gleaning as much information as they could about different regional cooking, and the varying techniques used. Armed with stories, passion and ideas, they bought what they\'d learnt back to Britain, and combined their new knowledge with their shared experience of working at London restaurants, the River Café and the Eagle, to create Moro with their partners, Mark Sainsbury and Jake Hodges. Jake has since gone on to open Bloomsbury restaurant, Cigala, whilst Mark remains the driving force behind the scenes at Moro.

To this day Moro continues to explore the nature of authentic Southern Mediterranean cookery, to share not only with its diners but also through the two Moro cookbooks, all that is intrinsic in this meeting of great Islamic and European cultures.  (http://www.moro.co.uk/)
