More 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). Her homage to Mexican food, MEXICAN FOOD MADE SIMPLE, is published in March 2010.

Product Description

Review

Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers has produced another winner... wonderfully fresh tasting recipes dispel the illusion that Mexican cooking is just refried beans, mince and guacamole. (Daily Express)

We've waited two years for Thomasina Miers' follow-up to her cookbook Mexican Food Made Simple, but thankfully it was well worth the wait. Wahaca - Mexican Food At Home is a vividly bright and mouth-watering selection of Mexican-inspired recipes, developed from Thomasina's extensive travels across the country. (Stylist)

If you love proper Mexican food, the recipes will hit the spot - and if you haven't tried it yet, you'll soon be a convert to la vida Mexicana (Delicious)

Just reading the introduction to Wahaca is enough to inspire even the most unadventurous of cooks... colour bursts from the pages - mouth-watering photography gives way to easy to follow diagrams for burritos, taquitos and tacos. (Country Life)

Quite apart from having opened up a cocktail bar in Mexico City and won Masterchef in 2005, Miers is the moving force behind the street food chain Wahaca. Her cookbook proves that Mexican food can be a matter of subtle flavours and zinging colours. (Telegraph)

There's lots of good stuff, including a generous breakfast section, a guide to chillies and lots of little essays conjuring the magic of a Mexican food market. (Metro)

Book Description

Real Mexican food is the hot new cookery trend - and Thomasina Miers has led the revolution with Wahaca.

I used to travel to London on a regular basis and Wahaca was always my staple restaurant. Having this book allows you to cook many of the dishes to the same standard as the restaurants. Whilst many take time to cook down they are easy to make and incredibly tasty.

I'd agree that some of the ingredients are harder to source and are required for the authentic flavour in the recipes. I've found buying them on Amazon is a good option and have included some links below

A good book with lots of recipes, but I prefer her first.Mexican Food Made Simple

Although there are new recipes, alot are repeated in this. What was sadly missing from the first book was the pork pibil recipe which is included in this one. If you have the first book I would not recommend purchasing this, if you don't have the first book I would recommend you buy it over this one. There are great recipes with a better layout in the first and the missing pork pibil book can be found here: [...]

Love this book, stays on the coffee table and each morning I look through and see what we fancy to eat that day with what we have in cupboards etc. Been through all the chicken recipes, love the stovepot cooking method!! Only trouble is is getting all the types of chillies here in Spain!!

This is a good book if you like the food at Wahaca and want to try cooking Mexican at home for the first time (I'm not counting El Paso taco kits as cooking!).

I loved the sweetcorn fritters (easy, not too many ingredients) - perfect for brunch served with bacon, grilled tomatoes and avocado.

The pork pibil is fabulous and tastes exactly like the pork pibil at Wahaca. However, the ingredients are tricky to find - I had to go to Chinatown for pork neck, and Borough Market for the spices. Also it is quite rich so best served at a dinner party with lots of sides.

This book is not great. All the amazing food you get a wahaca is not even touched on here. Is as if they have givent you all the recipes that didn't make the cut for they menu! Very boring. The pictures don't relate to the recipes. I could have spent my £11 just enjoying the food at wahaca! Don't by this book if you think you can go home and create some of the delights of what you ate of the menu.

I received this as a Christmas gift and cooked several of the recipes for dinner on New Year's Eve. Everyone loved the 'mexican winter salad' and several said it was the star of the show. I like that she explains the ideas behind the restaurant and goes into depth about ingredients.

have only tried a couple of the recipes so far but love the explanations of ingredients and tips on where to find some of those that are a little more unusual. looking forward to making many more dishes.

The recipes are easy to follow and the photos make you want to have a go. Some of the recipes I recognise from her restaurant, which is why I bought the book.
