Tapas Testing

It’s an open secret that I adore the food of Sam & Sam Clarke of Moro fame. The Moorish-inspired recipes from their brilliant cookbooks are delicious without fail and obviously very lovingly put together.

They recently opened Morito, a tapas restaurant next to Moro in Exmouth, London. I plan to go there in December, but was excited to hear that they had published a book of tapas recipes, aptly named Morito (little Moro).

On Saturday I did a test run with a friend of a few of the recipes. A few hours later we were stuffed to the gills, but very happily so. The recipes are easy to follow, even for novice cooks, and the dishes look great and taste little little pieces of heaven on a plate.

Here are a few pics from the day.
