'I've been eyeing up Thomasina Miers' MEXICAN FOOD MADE SIMPLE for some time, and now that I have it, I must say I have been revelling in it...this truly lives up to its title and is a gorgeously pretty book to boot, at once inviting and enthusiastic. There are many more recipes I'm just aching to try...for I can tell there is plenty of fun, and greedy reward, to be had.' -- Nigella Lawson
'Mexican food is one of the world's great cuisines and there is no one I'd rather read on the subject than Tommi. She not only knows the country backwards, having travelled and worked there extensively, but has such a passion for everything from the produce to the people. I trust her judgement, love her writing and her recipes are wonderful too. And with her experience of opening and running Wahaca, she not only talks the talk but walks the walk too. I cannot wait for the book.' --Tom Parker Bowles
