Thomasina Miers

Founder of Wahaca... anyone for tortillas?

Thomasina Miers

Biography

Date of birth: Unknown

Thomasina 'Tommi' Miers is an English cook, writer and television presenter. She is the founder of the Wahaca chain of Mexican street food restaurants. In 2005 she won the BBC TV cookery competition MasterChef, "impressing judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace with her bold, and at times, eccentric cooking style."

A long visit to Mexico inspired Miers to enter MasterChef. With little faith even to get past the first round, she impressed judges with her unique South American recipes and went on to beat 4,000 contestants to become the winner of MasterChef 2005. She has made two series of cookery programmes for Channel 4 with co-presenter Guy Grieve. One called Wild Gourmets in 2007 and another called A Cook's Tour of Spain in 2008. In 2011, she presented Mexican Food Made Simple for Channel 5.

Miers is co-editor with Annabel Buckingham of the cookbook Soup Kitchen (with an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall) and Mexican Food Made Simple .

Miers opened the first of her restaurants, Wahaca, in the West End of London in August 2007, focusing on Mexican street foods. In October 2008, a second Wahaca opened at Westfield in London. Since then she has opened two further restaurants in Canary Wharf and Soho. In 2011, Wahaca launched their first mobile street kitchen, selling Mexican food on the streets of London.
