One of the prizes donated to the Blaggers Banquet that most excited me was the one-off cookery class by Thomasina Miers, Masterchef 2005 winner and founder of Wahaca mexican street food restaurants. Tommi doesn’t normally offer small, personal cookery classes like this so I was very pleased indeed to bag one of the coveted 8 places.
Eight of us duly made our way to her home where she proceeded to get us all involved in preparing a series of delicious dishes. We had a great time, and learned lots about the ingredients and how to get the best out of them.
Everything was, as you can imagine, utterly delicious!
Here are a few images from the evening (yes that’s me facing off my fear of frying in hot, hot oil):
Tommi also has a brand new book out – I had a good look through it during the evening and it looks really great. It’s gone straight onto my own Amazon wishlist. (I’ve bought too many cookbooks recently, so have declared a very short moratorium!)
