Moro’s Arroz a la Marinera


Moro’s Arroz a la Marinera

My current fascination seems to be with food from the Moorish influenced regions of Europe and the Mediterranean. This wonderful Spanish fish and rice stew (paella) recipe is taken from the menu at Sam & Sam Clark’s Moro, a southern Mediterranean restaurant based in London’s vibrant East End. The recipe can be found here.

Although this isn’t found in Sam & Sam Clark’s recipe books, their Casa Moro: The Second Cookbook benefits from the experienced learned from publishing the previous cookbook. The recipes included are truly geared towards home cooks and serving sizes rather than the over generous spicing required for restaurant sized pots and pans. I can guarantee that once you start using this book you will come back to it regularly.

Over the weekend I caught a re-run of Nigel Slater’s ‘12 Tastes of Christmas‘ and although I find some of his recipes a little over egg and mixed up these little beauties looked wonderful and will be on my festive cookery list over the next few days. The recipe can be found here, on my recipe blog.

Pre-mixed cocktails in individual mason jars, on ice. must do for a party!

I came across this idea on Pinterest, it’s a brilliantly simple one and I can guarantee that I will be using this for a future party (maybe a special one likely to be happening in 2014).
