As the little sister of Moro, Morito has been serving delicious and innovative tapas and mezze for several years. Morito’s cracked plaster walls and striking bright orange Formica bar create a space that is relaxed and welcoming but also edgy and cool, described by Times critic Giles Coren as, “simultaneously supercool and modest, and as much like a brilliant little backstreet place in Spain as you’ll find in this country.” Now, with the publication of the cookbook of this hugely successful restaurant, Morito’s small plates can be cooked, eaten, and shared at home. Photographed over the course of two years, often by members of the Morito team, the pages of the book invite you in to celebrate and share the special character and atmosphere of Morito. There are more than 150 simple and seasonal recipes arranged in 10 chapters. Choose from (Breads) Za’atar Flatbreads, (Pinchos) Anchovy, Pickled Chilli and Olive Gilda, (Montaditos) Crab Toasts with Oloroso Sherry, (Eggs and Dairy) Huevos Rotos—Broken Eggs with Chorizo and Potato, (Vegetables) Beetroot Borani with Feta, Dill and Walnuts or Crispy Chickpeas with Chopped Salad, (Fish) Sea bass Ceviche with Seville Orange, or Black Rice with Preserved Lemon, (Meat) Lamb Chops Mechoui with Cumin or Smoked Aubergine with Spiced Lamb and Chilli Butter, as well as a handful of classic Morito desserts and drinks.
