‘Cook’ is the exciting new book from up-and-coming chef and food writer Thomasina Miers, winner of BBC 2's Masterchef 2005 and co-presenters of Channel 4’s The Wild Gourmets.
With her natural passion for flavours and ingredients Thomasina offers us an irresistible range of seasonal recipes that reflect her personality and love of all things real, hearty and above all delicious. With no hint of pretension, Thomasina's approach is relaxed and unfussy yet undeniably smart and modern, using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, and sticking to her firm belief in free-range and organic produce wherever possible.
Thomasina's flair and experience lend her food both excitement and conviction. Add to that her natural understanding of what makes great food and you have a truly winning recipe. The vibrancy, richness and diversity of her recipes comes from her assimilation of ideas and influences from all over the world, from the people and places she has encountered along the way, from London to Mexico. Whether you want starters, lazy brunches, a hearty main of meat, fish or vegetables, or a sumptuous pudding, COOK caters for every course. From moreish bruschettas to roast partridge with mascarpone and thyme, from the perfect BLT to chilli chocolate truffles, Tommi has it covered.
If you love incredible flavours and interesting, quality ingredients made into real, easygoing food, then COOK is the book you need to feed yourself and your friends.

“Thomasina seems to be knocking up delightful dishes for the sheer joy of it – and why not? Her passion for robust and sometimes exotic flavours is balanced by a sound nose for the best seasonal and local ingredients. She's just as good at shopping as she is at cooking. The result: her food is delicious, and her recipes are an uncomplicated treat.” Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
“This is a book for cooks whose love of good food extends to sourcing, cooking, eating, sharing and dreaming – about good food. Tommi Miers may be young, cool and clever, but she's also the original earth-mother, ladle in hand.”Prue Leith
“This has an excellent selection of recipes. Thomasina is an original and talented cook, definitely one to watch” The Bookseller
