If you love having friends and family round for dinner or simply rustling up fresh, fast food, Mexican cooking is fun, fantastic and full of flavour. One of its brightest stars, Wahaca chef and food writer Thomasina Miers shares the recipes she has gathered since she first fell in love with the country aged 18, reinventing the classics with accessible ingredients to demonstrate how exciting and delicious traditional Mexican food can be.

Reviews

'Mexican food is one of the world's great cuisines and there is no one I'd rather read on the subject than Tommi. I love her writing and the recipes in this book are wonderful too'
Tom Parker Bowles, Market Kitchen

'When I read this book I wanted to cook from it immediately ... then jump on a plane to Oaxhaca. Colourful and inviting, full of scrummy-looking and achievable recipes, it's for anyone who likes their food vibrant, healthy and ballsy...just like the author!'
Allegra McEvedy

'A world away from Tex-Mex sizzling fajitas with cheesy nachos, Thomasina Miers, former MasterChef champ and Wahaca restaurant founder, is bringing a large slice of genuine Mexico to the mainstream'
Independent

About the Author

When Thomasina Miers first arrived in Mexico aged eighteen, she fell so in love with its food that she went back to live there, opening up a cocktail bar in Mexico City and using her free time to travel the country and cook with some of Mexico's top chefs. After returning to London and winning BBC2's MasterChef in 2005, Thomasina opened the Mexican street food cantina, Wahaca, which won the Observer Food Monthly's 'best cheap eats' award, and has now opened three branches. She writes a regular recipe column in the Times and is co-editor of Soup Kitchen (2005) and the author of Cook (2006) and Wild Gourmets (2007).
