The Moro menu encompasses dishes that originated in Spain and dishes from the Muslim Mediterranean, two areas linked in history by the Moors' 700-year occupation of Spain. The book is much more than a simple catalogue of recipes—the chefsalso communicate the romance and tradition inherent in each dish and their writing is informed by an intimate knowledge of long-establish ...more

My mate Graham lent this book to me before going away on two weeks leave, and just before Maddy’s birthday. I wasn’t sure what to cook for her birthday and so, given this book and needing to tell him I’d cooked something from it, I settled on a Spanish feast. God, some of the recipes are really fantastic. The Tortilla with sweet onions is pretty special.

I figured lots of tapas would be the go – so tried the pinchitos morunos, port skewers of the Moorish variety. I also did the Fatayer from this
It's difficult finding general/culinary specific cookbooks that fit my dietary restrictions (vegetarian/no lactose). This works well.
The recipes are interesting and tasty and are not too ingredient taxing (semi-obscure ingrediants are substitutible or optional). I liked it when I initially skimmed it in Sainsburys (it was on sale).
Great collection of updated classic recipes derived from Arabic influenced Spanish cooking. By far some of the most complex (flavor wise, not preparation!) cuisine in the world the cooking of the Arab diaspora is really fascinating to me. This book does not disappoint.
Encountered and vanquished a simple lentil soup with lemon. Stole Staghorn Sumac from Searsburg roadside on Sam & Sam Clark's recommendation; toasted/dried and blended the berries into a bitter salad dressing. Enjoyed cooking with this book.
I bought this book after a trip to Spain. It's challenging, not for the cook in a rush, but even just using the recipes as a base for combining flavours has yielded good and tasty results for me.

useful perspective with some interesting recipe tastes selected formatted by a Arab influenced take on Spanish food.Not an inspiring book by any means, but a useful one for the odd recipe selection.

I wish the recipes didn't use grams!!! So confusing. So for that reason I've had a difficult time with a few recipes. The falafel is fantastic. Actually every single meze in the book is fantastic!!!
