Cook like a wahaca - cooking with Tommi Miers

One of the prizes donated to the Blaggers Banquet that most excited me was the one-off cookery class by Thomasina Miers, Masterchef 2005 winner and founder of Wahaca mexican street food restaurants. Tommi doesn't normally offer small, personal cookery classes like this so I was very pleased indeed to bag one of the coveted 8 places.

Eight of us duly made our way to her home where she proceeded to get us all involved in preparing a series of delicious dishes. We had a great time, and learned lots about the ingredients and how to get the best out of them.

Everything was, as you can imagine, utterly delicious!

Here are a few images from the evening (yes that's me facing off my fear of frying in hot, hot oil):








Tommi also has a brand new book out - I had a good look through it during the evening and it looks really great. It's gone straight onto my own Amazon wishlist. (I've bought too many cookbooks recently, so have declared a very short moratorium!)


Mexican Food Made Easy is currently on offer at Amazon for just £9.99 (RRP £20).

How lovely! I was so pleased when Tommi offered this as a prize and only wish I could have gone myself. It looks great.

You are lucky, I would have loved to cook with Tommi. I'm still hoping she will guest chef at The Underground Restaurant at some point.

What great photos Kavey! It was a great evening and I loved meeting you. Aaah still dreaming of that chipotle salsa of Tommi's. Hope you try some of the recipes at home and see you in Wahaca soon!
