Mexican Food Made Simple

by Thomasina Miers


A million miles away from cheesy nachos and cheap tequila, Mexican food is fresh, fantastic and full of flavour. One of the brightest stars in modern Mexican cooking, Masterchef winner and top chef at Wahaca Tommi Miers shares the recipes that she has gathered since she first fell in love with the country aged 18, reinventing the classics with modern ingredients to demonstrate how simple, nutritious and satisfying Mexican cooking can be.

Whether you’re looking for fun lunches, glamorous nibbles, sensational suppers or divine cocktails, MEXICAN FOOD MADE SIMPLE is bursting with recipes you’ll want to share with family and friends: easy-to-make moles, tacos and taquitos, exciting salsas and marinades and irresistible recipes to cook on your barbeque, to char-grill or just to flash straight into your pan.

Illustrated throughout with gorgeous, vibrant photography, MEXICAN FOOD MADE SIMPLE invites you to travel down the spice route and find your passion for the aromatic, or experiment with fast, fiery recipes using fresh chillies and herbs. And with Tommi’s top cooking tips and an extensive, easy-to-use menu planner, you’ll find everything you need to put together an authentic Mexican meal at home.
