Maureen: I noticed the other day that they had this book on display at Waterstones. Maybe they read, “A Cookbook a Month!”
Kirstin: They should read us, if they don’t. But even if they don’t, this is a really good book. A classic.
Maureen: I thought it was interesting that you could see how much food has evoloved since it was first published in 2003.
Kirstin: Totally. They had explanations of all the mad ingredients, like tahini, but people know what that is now.
Maureen: Stuff then that seemed really exotic, then you can now find anywhere.
Kirstin: You used to have to hunt for some of those things, but now you don’t have to.
Maureen: Did you have any successes?
Kirstin: Well, I only posted one thing, which was the lamb, but we love it. The cookbook is worth keeping just for that recipe. I LOVE that lamb.
Maureen: It had so many good recipes for fish, so i’m going to keep it just for that. We had an excellent run of Fish Fridays. It was great.
“The Moro Cookbook”
Overall Grade (A- F): Kirstin A. Maureen: A
Best recipes: Kirstin: Roast shoulder of lamb stuffed with saffron rice Maureen: Any of the fish recipes. All fantastic.
Grade for Photography (A-F): B. (It looked a bit dated, but that’s to be expected for a cookbook that’s 12 years old.)
Any disasters? None.
Bookshelf or Charity Shop Donation? Bookshelf for both of us. Indeed, it has been on Kirstin’s bookshelf since 2003.
