We’re heading back to the Wilderness…

Moro at Wilderness 2016

“Wilderness has become a must-do event in the Moro calendar and every year we look forward to being part of this unique cultural experience. This year, we’re delighted to be bringing a host of new dishes and flavours to the festival, all housed in our stunning Souk Tent.”  – Sam Clark

Wandering nomads of the Wilderness can refuel at Sam and Sam Clark’s Moro Souk Tent.  With their unique fusion of Spanish, African and Middle Eastern dishes, Moro will be importing their flavoursome offerings from Exmouth Market, into a cosy and colourful Bedouin-style tent in the Wilderness. Sam and Sam Clark are inspired by a cuisine that has its roots in Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean. These two regions are linked historically by the Moors’ 700 year occupation of Spain (from the eighth to the fifteenth century). Two great culinary traditions were drawn together, in what is often known as the marriage of saffron and cinnamon.

Today you will find at Moro dishes that remain faithful to their specific origins, whether they are Spanish or North African. Moro’s kitchen is alive. The wood burning oven and charcoal grill are both fed throughout the day, and the aroma of the sourdough bread baking pervades the air. There are silent cultures of homemade yoghurt, and fermenting vinegar hidden away from the constant clamour of the kitchen. Colour, texture and taste are combined on the diner’s plate.

TICKETS FOR WILDERNESS ARE NOW ON SALE.

Wilderness feast menus revealed!

This year, Wilderness festival is turning out to be a true gastronome’s delight.  

Sam and Sam Clark, and the Moro team, will bring their taste of the exotic to Wilderness, serving delicious Moorish-inspired feasts in their stunning Souk dining tent each day of the festival.  A separate menu including breakfast, a selection of tapas and mezze and all day mains will also be available all weekend, complete with atmospheric tunes to complete the dining experience.

Morito, Sam and Sam’s “simultaneously supercool and modest” tapas and mezze bar, will also be at Wilderness with a pop-up bar, next to the Moro Souk Tent.  Morito will kick off the festival with an exquisite six-course sherry-paired feast on Thursday 7 August.

As though all that wasn’t enough, 2014 will see the exciting launch of the Wilderness Cookery School, boasting a truly astonishing array of foodie talent.  Samantha will be holding a Masterclass with dishes from Morito’s new book.

After this weekend, festival food will never seem the same again…

We’re heading back to the wilderness

Wilderness festival, 7th-10th August 2014

Wilderness 2013

Mixing together the absolute cream of the crop in music, food, theatre and the literary arts across four days in August, Wilderness – rightfully hailed as one of the most idyllic, eclectic and gloriously paradisiacal events on the festival calendar – returns to the dazzling environs of Cornbury Park, deep in the heart of Oxfordshire.  Tickets are available here.

Sam and Sam Clark, and the Moro team, will bring their taste of the exotic to Wilderness, serving delicious Moorish-inspired feasts in their stunning Souk dining tent each day of the festival.  A separate menu including breakfast, a selection of tapas and mezze, all day mains and cocktails will also be available all weekend, complete with atmospheric tunes to complete the dining experience.

Moro’s feast tickets will go on sale a few weeks before the festival (don’t worry, we’ll let you know when).  But let us take you back to the lazy, hazy days of 2013 first…


News just in!
We’re really excited to announce that Moro’s little sister tapas and mezze bar, Morito, is coming to Wilderness for the first time.  The Morito pop-up will set up shop next to Moro’s Souk tent.  More details to follow soon.

Wilderness Festival

Everyone must dream at some point of headlining a festival: belting out a virtuoso guitar/ drum/ vocal solo to a mass of ecstatic fans. It’s a dream that must necessarily be abandoned upon becoming a chef – waving a spatula at the audience just wouldn’t feel the same. Yet, when the Wilderness team approached Moro late in 2010, that’s exactly how they sold it to us. The chance to cook our dream menu as ‘culinary headliners’ of the inaugural festival’s Saturday line up. It was hard to say no. Being at Wilderness was undoubtedly one of our highlights of 2011 and when we were invited back for 2012, we leapt at the chance.

This year, in a glorious technicolour berber marquée, we will host our very own venue at the heart of the festival. The Souk Tent will be an immersive Moro experience. Festival-goers will be able to start the day with breakfasts of hearty, spicy huevos rotos or Moorish granola, while tapas will be served throughout the day. If you’re running off to catch a debate, you can grab a take away meal – charcoal grilled chicken with fried potatoes and harissa or delicious spiced lamb with humous, chopped salad and flatbread. We’ll also be hosting six lavish feasts – a chance to stuff yourself silly on some of our absolutely favourite foods in a unique and truly special setting at the modest price of £35 per head.

The Moro Souk TentMonths of preparation are going into this, to create not just a meal but a complete dining experience.  We have spent weeks deciding on a menu that will tantalise and excite, while remaining true to the cuisine for which Moro is famous. We want to give visitors a chance to experience every facet and style of the food we love.

Our aim, as with 2011’s event, is for guests to mingle and enjoy the meal as a group, so we will serve the food on generous sharing platters. On last year’s menu, salted Padrón peppers gave way to boquerones, fresh prawn ceviche and rich, crispy pork chicharrones. We served our signature juicy marinated lamb and finished it all off with dollops lemony of yoghurt cake –  a Moro favourite. On this year’s menu, creamy labneh with crunchy crudités will open the way for stacks of smoky, succulent charcoal grilled meat and fish. Pudding will be simple: sweet, ripe English strawberries in Moscatel wine.

Moro at Wilderness

Almost the entire staff of Moro and Morito came to Wilderness last year, with the restaurants closed, making it more a family holiday than a work outing and a memorable event that’s still talked about fondly; we’re hoping to bring as many as possible again this August.

Tickets to Moro’s 2011 banquet sold out unbelievably quickly, so if you’re planning to join us for this year’s feasts (and we hope you are) it’s advisable to book your seat as soon as possible. You can do this on the Wilderness website in the shop section www.wildernessfestival.com/shop . Obviously, you’ll need a ticket to the festival too to enter the site.

We’re so excited! Can’t wait to see you there!
