Day job: Masterchef (literally), serial restaurateur, cookbook author and Mexico’s Queen of Queso
After taking out the UK Masterchef crown in 2005, Thomasina (AKA Tommi) Miers, has gone from strength to strength. We can put this down in part to her bubbly, infectious enthusiasm, but it’s probably more her incredible mastery of all things Mexican. Her mission is to bring the authentic flavours of Mexico to your plate, and this she has done through the super successful Wahaca restaurants in the UK (17 and counting). She’s also appeared on a number of TV shows documenting her travels through Mexico in search of the latest foodie trends and obscure ingredients. Thomasina has also released a long list of mouth-watering cookbooks, her latest being ‘Chilli Notes: Recipes to warm the heart’.
