It’s hard to avoid at least a little overindulgence at Christmas and as the festivities die down, I can’t help but crave for something fresh and healthy. Thus, I decided to make a fattoush at lunchtime today. I’ve made a variation of this Syrian/Lebanese bread salad from Moro East many times with aubergine and pomegranate […]

I wanted a really nice meal tonight. I’ve had fun the last couple of evenings but no ‘proper’ meal. And that’s a very unusual thing for The Single Gourmet Traveller. I was brought up to believe that if I didn’t have my ‘meat and two veg’ every day then something dire would happen to me; […]

What do you do with three-quarters of a cauliflower? That’s what I had left over from the Winter Tabbouleh I made on Friday evening. It’s actually quite a lot of cauliflower for a girl to use up on her own. I considered making the wonderful Cavolfiore Affogato – Drowned Cauliflower – again, as the addition […]

Regular readers of this blog will know by now that my favourite cookbook is, without doubt, Moro East by Sam & Sam Clark. I did make an alternative all-time favourite choice in my own Top Ten Cookery Books early on in my blogging career, calling heavily on nostalgia (although Moro East was in my Top 10 list), […]

After my lovely time at Moro yesterday talking to Samuel Clark, I was able to enjoy reading Casa Moro on the way home as he’d kindly given me a copy. My collection of Moro books is now complete and I can see this one will become a firm favourite too. I’ll also have to watch […]

It may be early on a rainy Sunday morning but it doesn’t dampen my excitement that at last I made it back to the wonderful Moro for a meal last night – all in the line of blog duty, you understand! I’ve for many years said that my two favourite restaurants are Moro and my local […]
