Sam (Samantha) Clark Chef & Author, co-founder/co-owner Moro/Morito
After a stint at The Eagle in Farringdon, generally credited with being London’s first proper gastro-pub, Sam joined Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray at the legendary River Café. Here she learned techniques and philosophies that would be the foundations for the cooking at Moro.
In the spring of 1997, she embarked on a camper van road trip through Spain and Morocco to the Sahara. Sam immersed herself in the food of each region, trying in every way to forget her ‘western’ culinary habits and to learn to cook every dish like a native, to create faithfully the evocative flavours of the land.
Sam and her husband, have run Moro and Morito together for twenty years, with Morito Hackney Road launching in 2016, and have published four successful cookbooks.
