In COOK, Thomasina Miers offers an irresistible range of seasonal recipes that reflect her love of all things real, hearty and above all delicious. Thomasina’s approach is relaxed and unfussy yet undeniably smart and modern, using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients and organic, free-range produce wherever possible. From moreish bruschettas to roast partridge with mascarpone and thyme, from the perfect BLT to chilli chocolate truffles, COOK shows how to use interesting, quality ingredients to create easygoing, extraordinary food.

"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
"Her recipes are both inspiring and simple, as well as completely delicious" - Sunday Times
