Moro The Cookbook explored the culinary traditions of Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean from a historical perspective. In this new book, Casa Moro, the Clarks maintain the same theme, but approach it from a much more personal point of view. It was while traveling through Spain and Morocco on their three-month honeymoon that they first discovered and defined what was to become their philosophy of food. Here they develop this theme and explain it in greater detail how they are constantly encountering new flavors and and flavor combinations. A major influence has been the small village in the heart of Moorish Andalucia, which has become a second home to the Clarks and their young family.
The passionate insight and strong vision of Moro The Cookbook are echoed in Casa Moro, the name of their little Spanish house. The recipes, many of which have not been documented before, are as flavorful and accessible as in the forst Moro book. 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 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.
