Sam and Sam met in the early ‘90s after being introduced by friends on the basis of their identical names – Samantha’s surname was Clarke before they married.

After a stint at The Eagle in Farringdon, generally credited with being London’s first proper gastro-pub, the Sams joined Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray at the legendary River Café. Here they learned techniques and philosophies that would be the foundations for the cooking at Moro.

The Sams have run Moro together since 1997 and have published a number of successful cook books.
