Thomasina Miers, of Master Chef and more recently, Wahaca fame, is writing a book called “Mexican Food Made Simple” that is being published next Spring.
But this isn’t a standard book launch. Tommi has reserved space in her book for a recipe submitted by a member of the public. In Tommi’s words
“The idea is that anyone out there in cyberspace sends me their favourite Mexican recipe using chilli. The recipe has to be easy to follow, not too complicated and use ingredients that you can get in the UK (even if that means sending off for a Mexican chilli by mail order). If the recipe is good enough, the winning recipe goes into my book (as judged by Hodder, my publisher, some mystery chefs and me), whilst if there is a runner-up, they will be published in Wahaca’s “Ola London”, which we hand out to 10,000 people a week at Wahaca and several hundred journalists.
For all the cynics out there, I have now written most of my book which has to be handed in by the beginning of September, so time is of the essence! If you are keen, send recipes to email@example.com before 4th September.”
