"Cook" is the exciting new book from up-and-coming chef and food writer Thomasina Miers, winner of BBC 2's "Masterchef 2005". This brand new recipe book shows us exactly why she won. 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.
